Demonstration and practical assignment
  • The participants are divided in 4 groups.
  • Group 1 attends demonstrations 1, 2, coffee break, 3, 4;
  • Group 2 attends demonstrations 2, 3, coffee break, 4, 5;
  • and so on for the next groups.
  • First day, each group prepare themselve for realizing experiments based on one demonstration
  • Second day, each group realize some experiments related to their last demonstrations
  • Third day, The group prepare short report and present it to the all participants. The reports consist of a 10 minute presentation.
