On the occasion of the 500th anniversary of the death of the Tuscan genius, the Cortona Valdichiana Host and Lucignano and Val d'Esse Lions Clubs have joined the initiative promoted, under the patronage of the Municipality of Marciano della Chiana and the other municipalities of the Valdichiana, from some Teachers of the Territory to realize an event with the aim of telling and enhancing the figure and works of Leonardo da Vinci.
The interview with the mayor Maria De Palma and the councilor for innovation of the Municipality Gionata Salvietti
The event, scheduled in Marciano della Chiana (Ar) from 14 to 16 November at the Tower, aims to introduce the Valdichiana community and in particular to young people the new technologies with a focus on robotic technologies. In fact, like today's kids are called digital natives, or have had to do since birth with smartphones, tablets, and the contents usable through them, the next generation will have to deal with the growing number of robots both in the home that working. Hence the term "generation R", or robotic generation.
It is divided into three days and includes a multimedia and immersive exhibition and a conference, as best illustrated in the attached poster; for the connections to the passage of Leonardo in Valdichiana the Torre di Marciano della Chiana was chosen as the location of the event.
The goal is to raise awareness among the young people who are about to choose second-level schools in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) disciplines, having as reference the current historical moment characterized by high unemployment, the lack of skilled workers in innovative sectors, the opportunity to find work occupations in companies operating in Robotics and Automation.
The participation of about 500 students is expected, coming from the different complexes of the Arezzo-Siena Valdichiana; each participant will receive a flyer, to be returned to the exhibition.
The Conference will include authoritative interventions by an expert in the scientific activity of Leonardo, University Professors of Robotics and Automation, Local Entrepreneurs who work in the field of Robotics and Automation, of the Mayors of the Municipalities of Valdichiana, of representatives of Trade associations, School and Work Alternation Managers.
Saturday, November 16th, at the end of the Conference, the names of some students will be taken from the returned flyers and assigned to Giunti Editore gift cards for the purchase of books.
