Middle classes learn by doing

Laboratorio Officina

cycle of lessons on the subject of bicycles began on 11 February: in the professional portable bike workshop set up in the classroom, Middle students can thus learn in a simple and easily verifiable way systems of forces, levers and materials technology.
A rotating wheel, the gyroscope effect, the perception of the effort and therefore the applied force linked to a crank and other applications in the context of the cycle, make this laboratory aprecious moment of in-depth study for their training.

In the second appointment in March, in the LABORATORIO OFFICINA, the children continued to experiment with the principles of physics and mechanics. This time, they discussed the braking system and its “simple complexity” and continued in the classroom with the concepts of force and energy applied and easily verifiable with the gearbox system.
