Follow up: WP@ELAB Consortium Meeting and Teachers Training: Universidade de Los Andes (Bogota)

The World Pendulum Alliance (WPA) Partners Meeting held at the Universidad de los Andes – Colombia and led by the professor of the Department of Mechanical Engineering – Universidad de los Andes, Carlos Francisco Rodriguez Herrera, brought together 40 professors (Prof. Horácio Fernandes, Prof. João Silva e Ana Pipio from IST/Portugal), and students (Pedro Rossa from IST/Portugal) from 8 countries with the aim of bringing together ideas of scientific dissemination based on the experiment of the determination of local gravity. In addition, during the meeting, other physical phenomena that can be studied with the experiment were identified, such as: the torsional elasticity of the pendulum and the effect of tides on the variation of gravity.
The Project Coordinators Ana Pipio(NRI) e Horácio Fernandes (IPFN) informed us that the meeting and the trainings were fruitful and very important for the achievement of the planned results.
