Abstract

The Lab of Tomorrow project introduces innovation both in pedagogy and technology. It aims at developing tools that allow for as many links as possible between teaching of natural sciences and every day life. Since science deals with the study of nature and the world around us, teaching science cannot be separated from daily experiences that result from student’s interaction with the physical phenomena. In the Lab of Tomorrow project the re-engineering of the school lab of tomorrow is proposed along with the development of a new learning scheme based on the production of computational tools and project material that allow high-school students to use their every day life environment as the field where they conduct sophisticated experiments.
