Students from the “Nikola Vapcarov” primary school in Strumica in a joint class


The joint practical work among young people from different ethnic communities is a great way to strengthen their mutual cooperation and improve interethnic integration in schools. Led by this realization, two teachers from the Nikola Vapcarov primary school in Strumica organized a joint physics class, at the end of April, 2018.

14 students from Macedonian and Turkish ethnic background attended the joint class entitled “Experimental Determination of the Resistance of an Unknown Resistor by Applying the Ohm’s law“.

Prepared with prior theoretical knowledge, during the class, the young people calculated the resistance in a given circuit with the help of analogue and digital instruments. The students first recorded the measured values in tables, and then calculated the resistance value according to the given equations.

The socialization and cooperation among the students were an inseparable part of the beautiful atmosphere during the joint work. After the successful achievement of the common goal, they stated that they would like for such classes to be organized more often in their school.
