DIARY #4 – First Week

The first week at the We are Energy campus has just ended.
Seven days full of energy and happiness.
From morning to evening the participants have been involved in many different activities.

A busy schedule of workshops, labs, trips and night events. During the free time, between one activity and the other, the 110 children and teens met each others. They played sport. They made new friends. They learned how to team up with other peers by overcoming cultural and linguistic borders.

Thanks to the Lab on Stage workshop, they set up a collective performance about the 17 Global Goals. A choral work that is the result of their extraordinary ability to watch the world with hope.

Organized in two groups, they discovered Assisi. They visited the Umbrian town. The Papal Basilica of Saint Francis. They were amazed by the Giotto‘s frescoes.

At the Tinkering Lab they are discovering how to build a Goldberg machine with recycled materials. How to exercise their mind with quizes. How to build an electric circuit.

While at the Visual Thinking Lab, thery are learning to tell stories with symbols and characters, not only words…

Every evening, after dinner, they participated in theme nights: Mini Games, Disco, Movies, Tableaux Vivants, Mistery Night…

But the campus is not over… Keep following us to find out what will happen in the next few days.
