SAY DO SCIENCE is a national project supported by MIUR (Ministry of Education and University) which involves a network of 10 Italian museums. The project’s goal is the promotion and dissemination of the scientific and technological culture involving museum staff operators and visitors, in particular schools and families.
Thanks to SAY DO SCIENCE Explora welcomed families, children, teachers and classes who participated in events, workshops, experiments and training classes.
The strength and innovation of the SAY DO SCIENCE is its engaging methodological approach which encourages direct exploration and the use of the scientific method. The involvement into scientific phenomena happens at physical, cognitive and emotional level.
