On February 6th and 11th, UNISA organised an event for high school students in line with the Scientific Degree Plan (PLS) promoted by the Italian Ministry of Education, University and Scientific Research. The objective is the dissemination of scientific culture, to encourage young people to undertake an academic scientific career through a first direct experience in the world of research.
In this perspective UNISA presented the S4CE project and risks and benefits deriving from the exploration and exploitation of energy sources.
Students were divided in groups of 3-4 and challenged to solve practical problems a Geoscientist could face as earthquake localization, magnitude estimation and so on.
The didactic competition also included a live quiz the students joined from their smartphones.
Students particularly liked the hands-on approach and appreciated the S4CE Cadeau.
