Of the 60 winning projects, 15 projects – a quarter of the total – were submitted by basic schools in Cuneo District. A total contribution of €110,255.56 will be allocated.
Behind the acronym Stem (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) scientific and technological disciplines are hidden. They are often the most frightening in books because of their theoretical complexity: but at the same time they are also the most exciting and involved from an early age in experiments, laboratories, inventions and the possibility of discovering the hidden talents of a scientist or researcher in every child and adolescent.
As a result, the leader of the Brothers of Italy group in the Regional Council, Paolo Bongioni, commented as follows: “It is another great advantage in the daily work that we, together with the Brothers of Italy group, do with the Regional Council in order to ensure growth and strategic development in all sectors Cuneo Prefecture. For Bongioanni, this intervention is a bet on new talents, but also an investment in the future of innovation in the province of Granda: “Giving our children the opportunity from primary school to fall in love with science and its experiments, to know the limits of technology and research not only means ensuring the most appropriate development for each individual of their abilities and aspirations, but also to prepare a tapestry of young talents who will one day be able to make their contribution and find employment in the extraordinary production capacity and innovation of the Cuneo region.”
