About the project
Explore the Nikola Tesla life and work until nowadays, as presented in science and everyday life. The project idea is to introduce the figure and work of Nikola Tesla in physics, technical culture, history, geography, biology and languages. In common activities students will demonstrate their knowledge about Tesla's life and inventions. Each team would show the ability to solve some of the current problems guided by Tesla's ideas.
- To develop the ability to work in groups and self finding information.
