Abstract
GRaffa is a project designed and carried out by the Associazione Giovanile Le Scie Fisiche, funded by the Lazio Region, with the aim of sharing the excitement of science and increasing appreciation for it, mainly through daily experiences of physical phenomena. It was conceived by young physics and philosophy researchers (mainly postdocs and PhD students) to spread physics and scientific culture by using a simple and fun language dedicated to the general public, especially school students. The main goal of the activities realized within the project is to allow people to understand that physics is not just the study of distant galaxies, particle accelerators or complex mathematical formulas. When we use the computer or decide what is the right oven temperature for baking our cupcakes, we are already doing science! Here we detail the results achieved with the GRaffa project over the last year, as well as a report of a survey carried out with students and teachers involved in the project's activities.
