As part of Edu.Lab and Torino City Love, the City of Torino together with CodyTrip is organising a virtual field trip for the pupils (7-14 years old) of Torino's schools on 22 and 23 April 2021.
CodyTrip is an initiative that uses digital technologies, coding and imagination to bridge distances and share the experience of a school trip online with thousands of peers.
During the two days in Turin, teachers and pupils will be able to visit the Mole Antonelliana, the National Museum of Cinema and the Egyptian Museum accompanied by exceptional guides; they will walk around the city appreciating its history, charm, tradition and "smart" vocation, they will do experiments, play games, walk the Mile of Innovation and decide together where to spend their free time.
On the way back, they will stop in Moncalieri and have lunch in the Rose Garden of its famous castle.
Thanks to specially designed technical solutions, the entire trip can be followed from any device connected to the Internet, without the need for specific applications. All you have to do is connect to the address of the interactive page where you will see live videos, quizzes, buttons and images. This will allow even the youngest children to follow the activities both from home and from school.
Participation is free of charge so as not to pose economic or administrative barriers to access, thanks to the contribution of Giunti Scuola, which covers organisational costs.
On 8 April at 6 p.m. there will also be a preparatory webinar for teachers, which will be advertised on the CodyTrip web page dedicated to the initiative together with materials and useful information for joining the telegita.
