Meeting in Padova
Pupils and teachers from partner schools from Portugal, Germany, France and Poland participating in the Erasmus+ Eupantec2019 project from 09.12-14.12.2019 stayed at the "Istituto Istruzione Superiore Pietro Scalcerle" in Padua in northern Italy, in the Veneto region, in a school with 150 -year history to implement the first mobility activity under the working name "Padova Motion"
The purpose of the meeting was to explore new technologies that can be used in teaching physics and to exchange experiences and ideas.
For 4 days, training sessions were held as part of workshops in the physics laboratory, as well as education during educational trips to the University of Padua, the "Museum of the history of physics" and the historical astronomical observatory "La Specola".
Padua was an excellent choice to implement the subject of "Movement" because it was in this city that he lectured and conducted his Galileo experiments, here Copernicus took his education. The first woman in history (the 17th century) also studied here. Students could learn about the rich resources of teaching aids used by physicists, astronomers from the 16th century, they even saw the preserved platform from which Galileo taught.
The workshops were conducted in mixed international 6 groups. Together, we studied physics with sensors and equipment from Vernier, Arduino, Pasco, Texas Instruments or the Phyphox application, the RemoteXY mobile application.
Many different motion detectors, optical gates, accelerators, cell phones, computers and tablets with software for graphical imaging of measurement results and even robots were in use.
Students could learn and conduct experiments themselves using many modern techniques and receive a lot of knowledge and valuable tips from teachers conducting the workshops.
For more information about the project meeting, see the meeting log (PDF available on this site). We also invite you to a slide show of the meeting and a short film and photo gallery.
The next project meeting will take place in Poitiers in France on March 9 and its main theme will be "Environment and society".
