Demonstration linked to a practical assignment
  • The participants are divided in 4 groups before the training school.
  • One week before the training school, all participants will receive instructions to organize themselves in advance and share the tasks.
  • Group 1 attends demonstrations 1, 2, 3, coffee break, attends demonstration 4 and performs some experiments related to demo 4, collects the data and makes a report;
  • Group 2 attends demonstrations 2, 3, 4, coffee break, attends demonstration 1 and performs some experiments related to demo 1, collects the data and makes a report;
  • and so on for the next groups.
  • The reports consist of a 5 minute presentation in front of all the participants at the end of the afternoon session.
