MARINE BIOLOGY LABORATORY
Have you ever touched a sea urchin? Do you know where the mouth of a starfish is? Do you know the elegance of Polychaetes?
Led by the marine biologist Filippo Fratini, the participants will be able to interact with natural finds and above all with live marine organisms present in the tactile tanks.
All the animals shown in the workshop were taken from the fishermen's nets.
Not everything that fishing vessels catch with their nets, in fact, has commercial value and can be sold. Much of the catch, up to 60%, is considered waste. 27 million tons of fishing waste per year die every day in our ports and are thrown back into the sea (Source: Mediterranean Fisheries Observatory), including: fish, sharks, rays, starfish, sea urchins, algae, marine plants, gastropods and hermit crabs.
Collaborating with fishermen, taking live animals trapped in their nets, these animals were transported in safe tanks to be reused for educational and educational purposes, showing and making the public aware of the wonders of our sea, thus stimulating reflection on the impact. of human activity, and in particular, on the role of fishing and aquaculture, and on the problems related to Overfishing and Bycatch.

UNDERWATER ARCHEOLOGY LABORATORY
This workshop aims to bring children closer to the discovery of the sea and above all to underwater archeology in a simple and pleasant way, to make it clear that this exciting and compelling work has little to do with sensational discoveries, everything depends on research, patience, from the studio, from everyday objects and from dirty hands.
With the use of images of wrecks, the remains of shipwrecked boats and their loads, our archaeologist will make children understand how these elements contribute to reconstructing the culture and history of a people.
Through a series of didactic-practical activities they will acquire some notions on the techniques of research, excavation, recovery and conservation typical of underwater archeology.
The course aims to bring children closer to the world of art by stimulating a creative attitude favoring the overcoming of those stereotyped patterns that do not allow free expression.
Through clay modeling, children will learn to shape their own artwork by encouraging them to express themselves freely, according to their abilities.
The great Michelangelo affirmed "every block of stone has a statue inside of it and it is the sculptor's task to discover it".
This fantastic invitation to discovery, to art, is a push for all children to reveal the capacity that is inherent in all.
LABORATORY THE ART OF RECYCLING
Environmental education and the care of one's living environment today is fundamental in the formation and growth of every child to make him aware of the fact that reducing waste, paying attention to the use of natural resources, avoiding excessive waste production, recycling plastic bottles, glass, paper, etc. they are good practices to be faced from an early age. Every child, when dealing with the outside world, must be aware of the fact that he must take a responsible attitude towards the environment.
The 'art of recycling' workshop aims to stimulate the free creative expression of each child and to raise awareness of respect for the environment through playful activity. The (recycled) materials such as paper, cardboard, plastic bottles, glasses destined to be thrown in the garbage, can be transformed into creative works, toys, objects, decorations and gadgets to give as gifts.
Gluing, threading, building and coloring help the child to develop fine motor skills. This laboratory allows to know the characteristics of the various materials with which the child comes into contact: malleability, consistency/resistance, heat, properties such as softness/roughness, thickness. Attention is paid to the various transformation steps that allow you to have control of the materials handled, favoring concentration on the individual steps, making everything a pleasant game.
