The Fondazione per la Scuola of the Compagnia di San Paolo worked long and hard at creating “Xkè? The Laboratory of curiosity ”, a centre of science education opened to the public in September 2011 or primary and middle schools. The basic idea is to creatively arouse children’s curiosity and wonder for scientific phenomena through games and discovery.
Built as a “laboratory of curiosity”, the centre offers students a series of game experiments based on the five senses and various sectors dedicated to measures, mathematics, IT and great scientists. Xké?’s proposals are strongly centred around the power of stimulation and attraction for these themes, as well as on the wealth of relations and exchange between the different role-players inside the structure.
The Compagnia supports Xké: The Laboratory of Curiosity through its institutional contribution to the School Foundation.
