Mobility in Italy has been thought according to the possibilities our school offers.

Being a vocational school, most of the work is done into labs.

The concept of LEARNING BY DOING here is evident and practiced.

Starting from the concept that performing STEM in the school is not easy but requires a lot of motivation and inspiration both from students and teachers, we planned a workshop based on how to build an App, using LEARNINGAPPS platform , where students have practiced and performed interactive exercises. So they created their own educational resources.

During the first cultural visit they practiced interaction in a NATIONAL PARK , the biggest science park in the South of Italy, students experimented  the four elements – FIRE, WATER, EARTH, AIR Inspired by the four natural elements and by the dissemination of scientific content through a multimedia system that uses classic exhibits and innovative multimedia, three-dimensional and immersive installations in a unique, engaging context with a strong emotional impact , students lived an extraordinary experience in a natural context, exploring and discovering. They also have seen the symbol of the Sila , that is the wolf, and the most ancient trees in Europe the White Maple.

Another activity proposed during the transnational meeting has been PAST & FUTURE telecommunications. Guided by a teacher of the school,  students created a radio connection as it was done during the II World War simulating an encrypted conversation. Applying knowledge and skills to the real- world situations has been a challenge that students really appreciated.

Another activity proposed was a lecture done by Professor G.Fortino , from University of Calabria, who has spoken on : From the Internet of Humans to the Internet of Things: Will the machine govern the future? 

The seminar started from a brief history of Internet and going towards the Arpanet to WWW where we can connect sensing devices to smart objects.

IoT allows objects to be sensed and controlled remotely across existing network infrastructure, creating opportunities for more direct integration between the physical world and computer-based systems, and resulting in improved efficiency, accuracy and economic benefit. 

The second cultural visit  has been done to the National Museum in Reggio Calabria, where the Bronzes of Riace stand.

Students were invited to take pictures. Infact, when back to school , they had to create an holograph using Activepresenter program, easy to be used by students during the workshop. 

Students were extremely curious and enthusiastic  our aim was to instill interest in them and as we said in the project, Go On Field Trips has really given them the chance to discover and explore new fields.

Another lab activity done was creating an holograph projector. Students were due to create and build the holograph using pictures taken from the visits.

So EDUCATE to INNOVATE as our task, is the way to motivate and inspire students to continue practicing STEM in their professional life.
