2. Water I use in Daily Life

What kind of water – hard water or soft water – we use in daily life? One the one hand – the taste of hard water is better; it is good for tissues of bones and teeth. On the other hand – it causes scale, which damages household equipment, and form sediment on the walls of tubes, which reduces efficacy of pipes. Is it possible to determine at home whether the water is hard? How we can remove scale? Is it necessary to soften hard water? These are problems faced by every family.

Biology

3. Mould in my home

In the module students are introduced to the fact that mould may also be found in their own homes. Students explore how different factors affect the growth of the mould on various kind of food-stuff, and raise research questions they are interested in. For example: How long does it take and what quantity of mould develops on bread products? Does temperature affect development, diversity, and quantity of the mould? While working, students come to questions that force to expand the research. As a result, students are looking for mould not only in the interior of the house but also outside - on the walls of houses, on stones, wood, stumps, wooden doors.  In the end students work out a list of suggestions that should be followed in order to avoid mould on food-stuff and various kind of objects.

4. What can I learn about the field of my side vision for the sake of choice of my future career

By performing an experiment on the measuring of the field of peripheral vision, students gain understanding of the compliance of the anatomy of sensory organs to their functions. Students develop the ability to work with text. They get to know the main preconditions of the clear vision, understand the concepts of central vision and peripheral vision. How can lifestyle affect our vision? In which real life situations we need more central vision, and in which – peripheral vision?
