Jožef Stefan takes Ljubljana

Written by:  Perčič M.

The 3.E and 3.M classes of our school Jožef Stefan went to Ljubljana on 29th of March. We started in Opicina and by train it took us two hours to arrive. First we visited the robotic fair in the electrotechnic gymnasium. They had six robots from some factories. We also listened to a short speech from a teacher. We liked a robot that was making pancakes. It costs approximately 80.000€. We will ask our principal to buy this robot as it would be very useful in our school!

School trip to Rome

Written by: Martin Gregoretti, 2E

Last week we went to Rome with school. Early Monday morning we took the train Freccia Argenta and left Trieste. The train arrived to Rome Termini at midday and as soon as possible we went to the hotel Dina to leave our bags and suitcases in rooms. In the afternoon we saw the Colosseum, which is a huge structure built by Romans. After we saw Circo Massimo and La Bocca della Verita and Palazzo Vittoriano. In the evening we went to eat in a restaurant and then returned to our hotel. I was in a room with Leonardo, Davide and Alessandro. The first night in the hotel we were watching the Emigratis.

On the second day we went to see the city of Vatican. We took the metro and this was the first time I took it. The city of Vatican was great, and so was the St. Peter´s Basilica. I had climbed the cupola and admired the beauty of the city around me. In the afternoon we visited the museum of Vatican and then the Sistine Chapel decorated by famous Michelangelo Bonarotti´s frescoes. In the evening we went to the hotel. There I met Spanish students.

On the third day saw the ruins of the Roman Forum, il Milite Ignoto, Piazza di Spagna and the Trevi Fountain. After that we tasted the Venchi ice-cream and went to buy the jersey of the football club of Roma.

On the day before last we went with the bus out of Rome to see a planetary and observatory of Rome. We heard many interesting things about astronomy, planets and stories of the universe we had never heard before. In the afternoon we went on a walk around the centre. There I visited the Official store of A.S. ROMA and licked tasty ice-cream with friends. On the last night in the hotel we had a bit of fun.

On the last day we visited the Catacombs of St. Callixtus. I liked the guide, because he was speaking very well. The catacombs were very dark. In the afternoon I went to the Hard Rock Cafe to buy a T - shirt for my mother and then when I was out of money I sadly sat on the train and return to Trieste.

I think this journey was one of the best I have ever done, because I had good friends and good time with them in an unforgettable city with a beautiful weather.

Is nuclear fusion the energy of the future?

An innovative method of clean energy generation

Written by Devan Štoka, 5E

16th February, 2017

Nuclear fusion is the process of two atoms, usually those with the lightest mass like hydrogen and helium, merging to form a bigger atom. The fantastic thing about it is the fact that during this process huge amounts of energy are released – in fact even more energy than in the usual nuclear reactors. That is, without leaving absolutely no nuclear waste.

The problem

So why have we not started using this ideal source of energy yet? Simply because it is extremely difficult to merge two atoms together; as we know, the cores are made up of neutrons and protons, the latter contributing to their positive charge. Even bringing two magnets together is difficult; now imagine doing this on a subatomic level!

How could this problem be solved?

Scientists overcame this problem simply by heating the atoms to extremely high temperatures. As the temperature rises, the atoms begin to scatter around faster and faster, eventually bumping into each other hard enough to merge. However, for now such high temperatures can only be maintained for a really short period of time.

Let's keep it cold

Low energy nuclear reactions or “cold fusion” is the name of a highly controversial technology that apparently allows bringing the whole process of nuclear fusion on a much lower scale. In fact, it can even be reproducible in someon´s garage. This can simply be accomplished with a special electrolytic cell like the one shown in the picture. Anyway, a lot of research still need to be conducted and only time will tell if this is the energy of the future.

Poesie

PAURA DEL FUTURO

 

Non è ancora finito quel mostro d'inverno,
col freddo e il gelo sembrava eterno.

All'orlo della strada che passa per il boschetto,
è spuntato tremante un fiorellino schietto schietto.

È spuntato solo un po' per tornare di sotto,
per ripararsi nel fogliame, il suo fagotto.

Così una fanciulla tremante e paurosa
si apre alla vita dura e scontrosa.

 

I. Ivković, 2.M

 

 

IL VUOTO

 

Come una candela che cade e la cera si spande,
come le onde più profonde e ampie che non lascian le orme,
così possiamo perderci nel mare che splende
ed essere di chi cade nel vuoto, il suo vuoto più enorme.

 

J. Farinelli, 2.M

 

 

LA VITA

 

La vita è come un viaggio,
la vita è un'avventura,
la vita è come un gioco,
non finisce mai,
si vince e si perde.
La vita scorre lentamente.

 

A. Stocca Kralj, A. Hervat, 2.M

L'amicizia

Poeti d´oggi.

L´amicizia

L´amicizia

È come la sporcizia

Ti si attacca

E non si stacca

Essere amici

Vuol dire essere felici

Anche se cadremo

E ci sporcheremo

Poi comunque ci rialzeremo


 

M.Vidali, R. Pecar, F. Negovetti, 2M
