Study and Research

Studying and reflecting on the contents linked to informal education and on the enhancement and cataloguing of our historical heritage.

CREI

Centro di Ricerca per l’Educazione Informale © (Centre of Research in Informal Education)

In 2008 the Museum has launched CREI, the Centre of Research in Informal Education.
It emerged out of two needs:

  1. to supply a permanent, systematic and innovative service to the school system aiming to make scientific and technological themes more accessible through experimental activities and informal educational methodologies;
  2. to carry out research and reflect on the practice of informal, museum and science education. CREI contributes concretely to the professional development of teachers, offering ongoing support to their work and facilitating the constructive adoption of scientific methodologies in school practice.

European project PILOTS

Professionalization in Learning Technology and Science

This Project is financed by the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Union and involves seven partners from five European countries. The aim of this Project is to contribute in a substantial manner to the training of explainers. The Project sets out to develop tools which can support explainers in their daily interaction with an adult public. The activities of the Project include: research on explainer training needs, four international seminars with further dissemination within the partner institutions, the development of pedagogic materials, the organization of an on-line discussion platform.

Safeguarding Contemporary Scientific and Technological Heritage

Our scientific and technological heritage – material and immaterial – from recent decades needs to be preserved for future generations as a source of knowledge and understanding of capacities, techniques and innovations which have made up our history. The Museum, starting from a cooperation agreement with the Italian Ministry for Cultural Heritage and Activities has set up a context for discussion with the most important Italian research bodies, universities, companies and the most important science and technology museums. The project takes inspiration from a similar initiative by CNAM, with whom a collaboration agreement has also been signed.

Scientific Catalogue of Our Historic Heritage

One of the aim of the Museum is to make historic heritage more accessible to the public. For this reason a research project has been set aiming to study the collections and to create a scientific catalogue constantly updated and available on-line.

European project OPENSCIENCE

The Project is financed by the eContentplus programme of the European Union with the aim of developing a European standard for the educational contents in digital format. Eighteen partners from twelve European Union Countries and United States are collaborating in the study of a model which allows the sharing and development of material on-line connected to science education. In a rich panorama of various researches, a shared instrument for the different archives, the efficient organization of their content and the structure of metadata is still lacking. The Project aims to devise resources which help science education, both formal and informal, to become more accessible.
