The popular seminars of the National Institute of Nuclear Physics (INFN), of the Physics Department of the University of Naples Federico II, the Superconducting Institute, Innovative Materials and Devices of the CNR (SPIN) and CNR ISASI - Institute of Applied Sciences and Intelligent Systems are back to Città della Scienza
The seminars, aimed at high school students, deal with topics that span all the research areas of the INFN and the Department and tell the most fascinating and crucial issues of modern physics: from macro to micro-microsm; from the study of neutrinos to the discovery of the Higgs boson and the concept of mass; from the concept of energy to the physics of the stars and the most catastrophic phenomena in the universe.
These seminar cycles, reaching the 8th editiobn this year, are part of the third mission of research centers and universities, i.e. the fundamental objective that these institutions have to communicate with society, and to the mission of Città della Scienza which is the scientific dissemination between formal and non-formal teaching.
The intent of these meetings is to combine formal learning (at schools, universities, academies) with non-formal learning (at museums, aquariums, libraries) to promote skills and careers in the STEAM (Science, Techonology, Engineering, Arts and Math) and contribute to training people capable of having an active role in increasingly democratic and technological societies.


The 2019-20 edition program is divided into 13 seminars that will be held in Città della Scienza from January until May 2020, from 10.30 to 12.30.

Participation is free.
To participate in the seminars, interested students can book at the Contact Center of Città della Scienza: tel. | e-mail
The seminars will be combined with a guided tour of the exhibition areas of Città della Scienza or an educational activity in a laboratory room. For more information, consult the School Catalogue, online at the following address, or contact the Contact Center of Città della Scienza.
