OpenScience “unifies” high schools and middle schools in Sicily

The openness of Sicilian sciences

Discovering the world around us and describing it objectively is one of the foundational goals of science.

Biology, physics, and mathematics provide the tools for a correct and comprehensive understanding of the phenomena that surround us. It is therefore essential that our children approach science without fear and with passion.

To achieve this goal, Liceo Scientifico “Luigi Siciliani” has organized a multi-year event in which the champions are precisely the students of middle school in the region and pupils of the first classes of secondary school.

The science event was held on Google Meet on Wednesday, January 19, 2021Open Science – A science told by children (6th ed.).

The afternoon is dedicated to comparison, exchange and sharing of experiences Sicilian High School Led by Director Filomena Rita FollinoIn cooperation with the preparatory schools: Gallopi Boarding School, Pascoli Aldisio Comprehensive Institute and Batare Rodari Comprehensive School who accepted the invitation to participate in the initiative.

The event was organized by Dr. Anna AlfieriWith the support of a. Nicolas Cherianowho took care of the technological management of the event.

During the event, very young middle school students alternate with high school first year students by presenting their small conferences on science topics such as vaccines, global warming, women in STEM fields, nutrition and many more, which men manage to approach with nature and simplicity.

Preparatory activities for Sicilian Liceo students were carried out within the summer plan funds, which were also intended to create moments of socialization among the younger students, after a long period of distance learning kept them away from school.

One evening, the flag was “brilliantly” told by the younger students and their teachers and principals were attentive listeners.

“The initiative is one of the mentoring activities that Liceo Siciliani organizes in this period for junior high school students,” says School Principal Filomena Rita Folino – who interacts and shares experiences and experiences with high school students, thanks to Openscience. A new way to do mentoring, a new way to practice and disseminate science To create a new and effective synergy between high school and middle school in the name of continuity and have a priority goal of making our children grow culturally,“working together”.
