The pictures were taken with an home made microscope  (made out of a low cost plastic lense plus smartphone) by first year students. In the context of MoM project dissemination in fact more and more students in the school have been involved in curricular and extracurricular Science activities with new materials.

SAP polymers, also known as “solid rain” may be the key to water scarceness management in agriculture. Due to their capacity to absorb  water up to 500 times their weight, they work as precious reservoirs.
