In Italy our local hero is Explora, the Children’s Museum of Rome
Explora is a science museum in the heart of Rome where families and people of all ages can learn together through over 250 exhibit activities in science, technology and art.
Explora is naturally the Italian local partner which orgainzes Unplugged gameplay within two elementary schools - Baccarini and Bonghi, which form part of one educational institution. Between October and November 2022, Explora will support the process of carrying out Unplugged games in 6 classes, introducing and animating the testing of the Clay and Sculpture, Cookies and Peace, Plastic Continent, Brain Twister, Equal games.
In a sequence of meetings, the concept of the Unplugged Quest and the pedagogical approaches of the games will be discussed with teachers and then performed in class. An introduction meeting with teachers will give way to an active exchange about the project, the Unplugged Quest and games and the assessment and rewarding strategies for teachers and pupils.
Active in-class sessions will follow for students in the 4th and 6st grade. They will be organized in 6 meetings of four hours each (one session per class) or in 12 meeting of 2 hours each (2 sessions per class).

La Fabulerie is working with schools, libraries, museums and corporations to unlock their creativity and enhance their digital skills. This knowledge is shared through creative workshops, training sessions, and digital resources.
La Fabulerie has built a large network of teachers with its Fabulous Museum, an interactive and pedagogical experiment for kids from six to twelve years old, bringing together experiments and skills: digital content, open data, theatrical mediation and immersion.
