Project Description

SET Scuola e territorio

Project partner:
Fondazione Golinelli, Fablab Bologna

Project client:
Confindustria Emilia Romagna


An educational program that supports children and young teenagers in designing new start-ups for the province of Bologna and Modena. They start designing and realizing with the support of the local Fablab, an innovative product, around which they define a business plan and a communication strategy.

The project ran from September to May in the afternoon classes of selected schools. The methodology used was Design Thinking, an approach that is able to develop and implement creative processes and critical thinking to solve problems of a diverse nature. It’s a method that teaches through experience, that accepts challenges as moments for learning and that educates through the value of sharing.

At the end of the program, all the students presented their projects to friends and parents during an open fair organized at the Fondazione Golinelli headquarters in Bologna.

The program has been developed for the secondary schools of Bologna and Modena districts and it has run during 2016-2017, 2017-2018, 2018-2019, 2019-2020 – and we are now ready for the fifth season.
