On the first floor is the section dedicated to PARI, the game path consisting of 11 interactive displays to reflect on and explore Equal Opportunities and Economiamo: earn and save, donate and invest, the economy has never been so much fun!, the game path on economic education with 10 interactive stations.


Missione Me
What better occasion to inaugurate with us Missione me, the new exhibit dedicated to the human body? Discover the skeleton, the digestive system, the respiratory system, the circulatory system and the 5 senses, thanks to the new interactive exhibit, entirely designed by Explora’s set-up team, allowing children to approach science education through a hands-on approach, thus combining discovery and play. Missione Me is part of Explorando in AR – Human Body and Augmented Reality, a project realized thanks to Concessione dei contributi annuali e accordi di Programma e Intese – Mur, per lo sviluppo della ricerca e della sperimentazione delle metodologie per un’efficace didattica della scienza e della storia della scienza , which includes, in addition to the creation of the interactive exhibit the creation of a training course for teachers and educators, and Missione Me, the set of fifty playing cards designed to explore the various systems, organs and apparatuses of the human body in 3D, accompanied by short audio descriptions and transformed into visible ones thanks to the app of the same name that exploits Augmented Reality through virtual models to be observed.
