The Network of Learning: science, knowledge… science-fiction!
Science is the key theme of the second edition of the “Stories about the future” project promoted by Snam in association with Federparchi-Europarc Italia, and endorsed by the Italian Ministry of the Environment. The programme is aimed at 3rd, 4th and 5th year primary school classes.
“The Network of Learning: science, knowledge… science-fiction!” is the title of the project dedicated to the relationship between man and science, to the proper use of natural resources and to the contribution of the technological evolution to sustainable development.
Equipped with an Astro Exercise Book and accompanied by the friendly characters Tube-Arthur, Red the Robin and Eu-Genius, the pupils will carry out scientific experiments, listen to stories and create games, exploring all of the content in a fun way. The formula, already tried and tested by over a thousand classes in 2014, fosters creative expression and stimulates the imagination.
The learning kit available to teachers and pupils (downloadable also from this page) contains:
- A Teacher’s guide, with notes on the topics and ideas for classroom activities;
- Exercise books for pupils, which will accompany the children on their discovery of the world of science and innovation and which can be used both at school and at home with interesting content and games;
- A USB flash drive with all the materials in digital format;
- A fun poster, to be hung up in class, which will help teachers to involve the students;
- A charming magnet for each child, featuring the three characters.
For the second year running, the learning project will be accompanied by a competition designed to encourage the children to produce their own personal and creative representation of the themes in question: each class will create an artistic project based on the things they have learned in class. The projects will be examined by a special panel of judges which will pick the three winners and announce twenty highly commended entries. The winning class will receive an Interactive Whiteboard (IWB), the second-place class a Microscope with Tablet, and the third-place class a Laboratory Physics Kit.
