The delegates of Science on Stage Greece held a workshop with the title "Energy: Look at its forms, find out its conversions, on a… fantastic bike ride!".
The following topics were discussed in this workshop:
- Theoretical remarks on the concept of Energy, its forms and its transformations. Misunderstandings and alternative ideas of students on this topic.
