Draghi’s visit to the National Laboratories in Gran Sasso has brought back the spotlight on the Italian world of science and the need for more and more young minds working in all of our scientific institutions.
The school is where the passion for science should grow in the new generations, but it is also the one that has suffered the most from the restrictions imposed by the pandemic caused by Covid-19. Small signs of a return to normalcy are beginning to appear with museums and educational workshops now open to the public and students of each school.
The Scientific Secondary School of Arzachena (iis Falcone Borsellino) has organized an educational educational path for students of the past few years, dedicated to science. The first step was taken by taking the students to visit the INFN (National Institute for Nuclear Physics) laboratories located in the depths of the Sos Enattos mine in Lula. So the new frontiers of physics were demonstrated by researchers at the Archimedes Project, the first step in the site’s nomination to host the largest gravitational wave research laboratory: the Einstein telescope.
The University of Cagliari with the laboratory of the Departments of Physics and Chemistry at that time was the place where students were able to learn about research taking place in Sardinia, and to conduct educational experiments in the museums of the university city of Monserato. The last place visited as part of this educational project was the Planetarium of Unione Sarda. Stemming from the scientific revolution of Galileo Galilei, we have come to the present day to confront the astounding mystery of dark matter and energy. Two of the great mysteries of the universe, new and young minds await to be fully revealed.
