Kids Lab for Sustainability Project

April 11, 2024 - 16.00 - 19.00

Piazza Leonardo da Vinci, 32
Politecnico di Milano, Room 3.1.6

How can we encourage scientific curiosity, the spirit of discovery and environmental awareness in children as early as kindergarten?

The final conference of the KidLabs4Sustainability project will present the results of three years of work on these topics on 11 April 2024 at the Fondazione Politecnico di Milano.

During the event we will explore:

  • Innovative practices to introduce STEM concepts in a playful and engaging way.
  • Approaches to outdoor education that stimulate creativity, physical activity and connection with nature.
  • Strategies for integrating sustainability into preschool education programmes.
  • Resources and practical tools for creating meaningful and fun learning experiences.
  • The event will be enriched with interactive workshops, inspiring presentations and best practice sharing sessions, all designed to provide you with concrete ideas and resources to take directly into the classroom.

Join us for inspiration, sharing and collaborative learning as we work together to shape a brighter future for our children and the planet.
