Kevin Ford OR4ISS with Liceo scientifico Giacinto De Sivo–Fondazione Villaggio dei Ragazzi, Maddaloni, Italy-Nov. 20, 2012-08:36 UTC-telebridge via IK1SLD

The high school Liceo scientifico “Giacinto De Sivo” of the “Fondazione “Villaggio dei ragazzi” of Maddaloni has been always committed, since its birth, to spreading out the scientific knowledge, particularly focusing on the main scientific aspects. Its main goal is to promote new teaching strategies able to put the students in a dynamic perspective. The arid knowledge, based only on handbooks, must necessarily be abandoned, to advantage an approach based on the research and on the critical discussion of the learning. The "Liceo scientifico" is a part of the "Villaggio dei Ragazzi" foundation, that is composed by 6 different fields of study: Technical, Aeronautics, Musical, Linguistic, Transports and Logistics and Scientific High Schools. All the 1500 students of the Foundation will be involved in the project promoted by the Scientific Lyceum as simple auditors, while our students will be active participants.
Age Students 14-18.
