Beijing (English) - - INFO -

The Ac­cred­ited Ital­ian Em­bassy School of Bei­jing par­tic­i­pated in the 2017 Bei­jing Kids De­sign Week (KDW) held at the China World Mall from Septem­ber 27 to Oc­to­ber 8 and Septem­ber 28 was the week's “Ital­ian Day.” KDW aims to build into a plat­form with the core of “with kids, by kids, for kids” and dis­plays achieve­ments in cross- dis­ci­plinary re­search and cre­ativ­ity.

Stu­dents from the school joined dif­fer­ent work­shops to use their cre­ativ­ity. At “The World of 1×2” Work­shop,” they built a small China World Mall with Lego bricks and a three- di­men­sional space with sticks. They be­came de­sign­ers in the “PACEE” space ded­i­cated to con­cepts of mod­u­lar ar­chi­tec­ture.

The school or­gan­ised a “Creative Sa­lon” for the week, tak­ing on the theme of “Tra­di­tion, In­no­va­tion and Con­tin­u­ous Re­search in Ed­u­ca­tion; The Global Ed­u­ca­tion Jour­ney—di­a­logue be­tween Italy and China.” The event guided guests to learn about the school and dis­cussed the needs of kids liv­ing in a mul­ti­cul­tural and dig­i­tal set­ting.

Mari­as­sunta Peci, a renowned psy­chol­o­gist, gave a speech and sum­marised the school's core val­ues and char­ac­ter­is­tics. Chiara Gensini from the In­ter Academy, Luca Fois from Po­litec­nico of Mi­lano, and oth­ers in­tro­duced the school to the pub­lic and dis­cussed chal­lenges and op­por­tu­ni­ties fac­ing in­sti­tu­tions, ed­u­ca­tors and fam­i­lies in the fu­ture.

At the event, an art teacher Gior­giaces­taro from the school taught a creative wa­ter­color art class to kids; a chef from the school or­gan­ised a food work­shop where kids learned how to make tra­di­tional Ital­ian pasta with pesto sauce. The KDW ended with a foot­ball camp or­gan­ised by In­ter Academy Yi­hai on Oc­to­ber 6.
