La Fabbrica della Scienza – Fifty guests will take part in the ìMental Calculation Day

The “Mental Calculation Day”, an initiative recently held at the Science factory in Jesolo, was a real success. The event was attended by 50 guests, i.e. all the teachers and students from the Triveneto who qualified for the final of the “Italian Mental Calculation Championship”. The prize for their great efforts was a free guided tour of the futuristic educational exhibition in Jesolo. From the Venetian area, the finalists who accepted the invitation to Jesolo were Alessandro Culatti Zilli from San Donà (who placed fourth in the national competition), and the finalists of the second year of the “Carpaccio” secondary school in Cavallino-Treporti: Mia Molin, Giacomo Fabio Menis, Nora Bubacco, Vittorio Maietta, Sara Geromin and Massimo Bodi. The guest star was the writer and journalist Dario De Toffoli, founder of Studiogiochi and author of many books on this subject, including the latest “Il grande libro del calcolo veloce e mentale” (The great book of quick and mental calculation”. De Toffoli entertained the finalists and their families by involving them in intuitive mathematical, logical, geographic and astronomical puzzles and paradoxes based on reasoning. The Science Factory is open every day from 10 am to 6 pm (last admission.) For further information: www.lafabbricadellascienza.it
