During the webinar, Ms Altieri will explain, together with her guests Professor Alessandro Bogliolo and Professor Giorgio Famiglini from the University of Urbino, Italy, how science can be taught outside the classroom, based on their experiences from a science engagement initiative called Science Spritz.
Science Spritz are open-ended science lessons held by teachers and researchers of the University of Urbino, Italy, in which students from secondary schools and universities, citizens and tourists have an active role to play. One of the main topics addressed at those events is the dangers of drugs in drinks. Real experiences from the chemistry department of the University of Urbino have been transformed into pedagogical models dedicated to the management of and approach to drug consumption at schools.
