EDU-KIDS 2017-2018: the Laboratories also think about the little ones

Again this year the Frascati National Laboratories had the chance to contribute to the growth of the interest of young generations in the fascinating and complex world of particle physics.

The “Io dico l’Universo” program, which has been addressing its dissemination project to both primary and lower secondary schools for almost 20 years, includes the following proposals for any applicant school:
guided tour of LNF, meeting a researcher at LNF but also at schools and public libraries, as well as specific activities designed for the little ones during the open days.

During the current school year, we have hosted 5 primary schools and 13 lower secondary schools, for a total of over 1000 students!

We welcomed a large crowd of little enthusiasts also at OpenLabs, the Frascati National Laboratories’ open day, during which activities beyond conventional teaching were scheduled and kids experienced physics playing with our researchers.
