Fisica 4.0

Fisica 4.0

School of Physics 4.0 with Arduino and Smartphone, promoted by the Physics Department of Sapienza within the Scienti fi c Degree Plan, and held at the FabLab InnovationGym of the Fondazione Mondo Digitale. Three days dedicated to digital programming and manufacturing. The course is aimed at the realization of kits able to perform and demonstrate physics experiments, as well as bringing the teachers closer to programming and rapid prototyping. Every year in September there is a course that will bring to light different artifacts, this year we have the pleasure of organizing this initiative, sure that this edition will also produce interesting objects. Attached the prototypes of the 2017 edition that will be partly exposed.
The first day was dedicated to learning the Arduino programming with Giovanni Organtini, explaining the use of some sensors and transducers, the sensors working in a smartphone and which App can be used to make physical measurements.
On the second day the teachers are divided into groups and start to design their experiments, in a completely autonomous way. With a rough design, what can be built in FabLab is made by the fablab staff. The missing material is purchased with a shopping session at a shop run by Chinese: teachers are left free to purchase as deemed necessary or useful for carrying out their experiments. The owner of Eva Shopping lets us invade her small, but well-stocked shop for a good half hour. Back at FabLab, the set-up of the experiments that are completed in the afternoon began.
On the morning of the third day, the experiments are perfected and refined, and after lunch each group illustrates to others what has been done.

Dipartimento di Fisica Sapienza Università di Roma & Fondazione Mondo Digitale

Giovanni Organtini is Associate Professor of experimental physics for Sapienza Università di Roma. He teaches Physics for biotechnologists and Computing and Programming for physicists. He is a member of the CMS collaboration at LHC, with which the Higgs boson was discovered, and joined the PADME experiment in Laboratori Nazionali di Frascati for the search for new physics in the dark matter sector. He is the Director of the Sapienza Physics Museum and is involved in numerous outreach and training activities, especially using new technologies. He invented the School of Physics with Arduino and Smartphones for teachers and is the Italian Ambassador of the PHYPHOX App, that turns a cell phone into an instrument.
