Sperimentare il Futuro (Exploring the Future) is an educational project aiming at innovation, development and the diffusion of scientific skills.
The goal is to focus on innovation as a catalyst for students, so as to provide them with a didactic tool to give them a grip on the world of science, technology and technology transfer. Scientific literacy and experimentation are the key to a full understanding of the basic rudiments underlying innovation.
A didactic experience allowing young people to explore, learn and participate in the evolution of science and digital technologies.
The relationship between man and technology involves the use of increasingly sophisticated and intelligent equipment, which on one hand pervades the everyday life of all of us and on the other demands that companies acquire the necessary skills to produce innovative and efficient services and products.
It is essential to have an understanding of what lies behind concepts such as Big Data, Artificial Intelligence, Internet of Things, Man-to-Machine, Advanced Automation and Smart City in order to face the future with confidence and be able to mould it. It means viewing the scientific world with new eyes.
Science can amaze, captivate and fascinate. It lies behind all the radical changes we are experiencing. We approach science in the form of experiments, linking it with creativity and imagination to prepare the knowledge and skills that students will need as they fashion their own journey into the future.
Thanks to our collaboration with Immaginario Scientifico of Trieste, which developed the project with us and created laboratories and tools specifically for Italian secondary school students (aged 11-13), the participants were able to apply what they learned about the Internet of Things and domotics, gears and robotics, including the basics of programming, in Industria 4.0.
The programme was launched at the Caprin Institute of Trieste in spring 2018, thanks to the planning of award-winning Prof. Dario Gasparo. It will be extended to 6 FVG schools in the 2018-2019 school year, reaching 1500 students.
We are always happy to learn about new projects and initiatives in order to promote and support those who are committed to creating social value.
This is why we select projects sure to make a social impact and introduce innovation, possibly centred on young people affected by the four areas of concern: poverty, health, education and economic development.
