Welcome to the web site of our project!

Physics usually belongs to the less favourable subjects at all educational levels. The reason for this is probably related to the fact that within the standard curriculum there is not enough time to obtain personal experimental experience with physical laws and phenomena. The subject is therefore often reduced to boring memorising of formulas without a detailed explanation of their meaning. That’s why there is great effort to use methods and ways of teaching that could make physics more attractive and that could help in deeper understanding of physical phenomena. Since the attitude of pupils towards science is formed already during their early school years, we have decided to propose a project which aims to help basic-school pupils discover the essence and the beauty of scientific research via interactive activities. The project was supported by the Slovak Research and Development Agency under the contract No. LPP-0124-09 and is being carried out since September 2009.
