Innovation, youth empowerment, active laboratory teaching: these are the ingredients of the project that has made education an opportunity to put young people in direct contact with science and business, in an academic key. What are we talking about? IMCD Stem Lab, an educational project wanted by IMCD Italia and BDC School – the first born from the partnership between the two Italian realities – which, through an innovative academic program on STEM subjects and a real experimental laboratory – brings science, active teaching closer together and business. IMCD Stem Lab, which will officially inaugurate in October and will be active starting from the school year. 2022/2023, is located within the BDC School and can be used by students of different age groups (from kindergarten to secondary school). The STEM Laboratory will be structured for regular use by students who will have access for different types of activities (chemistry experiments, biology activities, coding, educational robotics, etc.). With this project, IMCD puts its know-how and the rich wealth of sectoral skills of its team at the service of the school, which has already started working closely with the teachers of BDC School. The structure of the STEM laboratory is in line not only with the educational philosophy of BDC School but also with the “Inquiry Based Learning” methodology typical of the Anglo-Saxon culture and, in particular, with the modus operandi of Cambridge International that BDC School integrates within of your curriculum. This project will also make it possible to apply the IB curriculum that the school is inserting into its training proposal with BDC Middle School students. IMCD Stem Lab will also be open to non-enrolled students: the goal is in fact to create a meeting point that allows high-level training in scientific subjects for all young people in the Milanese area (and beyond). In particular, great attention will be paid to the theme “Women and STEM studies”. Part of the mission of BDC and IMCD also includes the following objectives: ● to promote women’s access to scientific training courses; ● bring the university and research world closer to the professions, supporting gender equality. Thanks to this double project authorship conceived by IMCD and BDC School, laboratory teaching becomes active and participatory, and thus assumes an important inclusive value, favoring and stimulating more dynamic learning processes. Marco Madeddu, CEO of IMCD Italia states: “This project is particularly close to my heart, not only because it is the bearer of values that we share and of which we are active promoters in IMCD. Since I was a child, I have cultivated a great passion for technical and scientific subjects, which then led me to choose an address of technical-industrial study and to arrive today in a prestigious company like the one I have the honor of managing. There is a great urgency to prepare talents with high technical, scientific and industrial training which is also strongly supported by Italian institutions. This growing demand represents the future for the new generation that today faces the studio and dreams of pursuing a career in the technical-scientific field “. Irene Piazza Roncoroni, founder and CEO of BDC School concludes: “I dream of a better world with school at the center. An experiential school capable of capitalizing on experience starting from our cultural roots as a people of the Mediterranean. A school of life for life. I would like to thank IMCD for helping us to give our students and those from the Milan area a quality experience, adding an important step in the academic career of students from the Milan area that will help them have a more open and practical vision for their future. “
