Public-private partnerships

Webtrotter IX Edition - 2021/2022 The Webtrotter project focuses on the intelligent search for data and information on the net, taking up – in today's extraordinary technological context – the classic "scholastic research", which has always been a fundamental moment of training, whether in the humanities or in the scientific field.
The goal is to stimulate training in the appropriate use of new digital tools, the potential of which is not adequately exploited without a systematic, critical and aware approach on the user's side.
The objective is of a cultural nature but it also has a playful character; Webrotter isa challenge on absolutely non-trivial questions, aimed at arousing curiosity and interest in children, prompting them to discover tools and information resources available through any computer connected to the internet. A competition is therefore proposed allowing the first 10 schools to be awarded.
