Through new digital tools and the embrace of languages and technologies, teaching methods have become more inclusive, innovative and sustainable. This is the premise on which the latest “Ora di Scienza!” call for projects is based.
“Mind the STEM Gap - Together” (30 June - 29 October 2023 at CDI-Centro Diagnostico Italiano, No 20 Via Sant Bon, Milan) is an exhibition of works produced by 150 students of both sexes participating in the “Mind the STEM Gap” Manifesto, an initiative run by Fondazione Bracco to encourage girls and women to transcend sexist stereotypes by entering and prospering in the world of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).
On 14 February, a few days after the International Day of Girls and Women in Science (11 February), Palazzo Reale became the venue for ”Loving science, nature and peace like Marie and Pierre Curie,” an event with two extraordinary French guests: the physicist Hélène Langevin-Joliot and the planetologist Yves Langevin, who are, respectively, the grandson and great-grandson of Marie and Pierre Curie.
Having participated in the invitation for tenders for the Region of Lombardy’s “TOGETHER” programme, which seeks to provide practical help to young people in difficult situations, Fondazione Bracco was selected to carry forward a project involving young people from all over the region.
After the success of the first three calls for projects for the promotion of inclusive education, Fondazione Bracco has launched a fourth call as part of its “Ora di scienza!” programme, the aim of which is to engender enthusiasm for science subjects in schools by arranging talks with women scientists and purtting forward ideas about possible new teaching methods and lessons, specifically:
Mind the STEM Gap is Fondazione Bracco’s Manifesto in support of access to STEM disciplines for women

Enhancing and encouraging innovation in technical training courses is a key part of building students’ skills and strengths.
For the academic year 2020-2021, Fondazione Bracco Foundation is supporting Scuola Musicale dell'Associazione Jubilate by offering bursaries for classical music students.
After the success of the first edition, Bracco foundation is relaunching as part of “Bracco for schools” the “Science hour!” Teaching project, an initiative aimed at teachers and students of middle and upper schools in Lombardy, Lazio and Piedmont to bring more science into society, starting from schools.
he Coronavirus epidemic has forced everyone to accept the importance of science. Schools of all kinds and levels are looking at science and research more closely than ever. Bracco Foundation offers them the “Science Hour!” project with teaching suggestions and observations from the #100esperte to offer schools stimuli and references that are reliable and certified.
