Marketing Text Science can be a fun and fascinating game. SAT methodology has been structured to propose a teaching and learning process aimed at stimulating the young's interest towards Science and scientific contents and the use of creative skills. Developing events based on the connection of theatrical techniques with scientific experiments represents a learning/teaching experience different from the traditional one - generally based on the top-down transfer of notions - and focuses on interactivity and cooperation
The handbook is diveded in two main sections:
1. introduction of a theoretic-methodological model where drama techniques and practice are applied to support the teaching and learning of scientific contents; detailed description of the organizational aspects, the content elements and basic principles of a drama workshop.
2.provision of practical examples for the realisation of training workshops where scientific contents and theatrical techniques are integrated and applied, so as to put trainees in the condition of creating, developing and performing a real Science-Theatre event.
