THE STE(A)M IT PROJECT WITH THE “PIETRO GUADO“ SCHOOL IN SALICE TERME
On 6 October 2020 Kalpa took part in the initiative promoted by the European project STE(A)M IT with the children of the primary school “Pietro Guado” of Salice Terme. The project was created with the aim of making students reflect on the key role that STEM subjects play in improving our lives and on their importance for our future.
In this virtual meeting our colleagues Sara Davin, Le Van Quach, Camilla Carpano Maglioli and Elena B. had the opportunity to tell how the study of STEM subjects allowed them to make innovation to contribute to social welfare. With a particular focus on the studies undertaken, they explained how their passion for scientific-technological disciplines was born and how these were decisive for their life path.
What has surely emerged for them is the awareness of having stimulated in children curiosity about technology, that genuine curiosity that over the years will lead them not to be satisfied and to look for concrete answers.
