Cos’è il Summer LAB? 
E’ un laboratorio estivo di immersione nella lingua inglese in cui i bambini dai 4 ai 10 anni avranno l’occasione di sperimentare nuove abilità individuali, potenziando la loro intelligenza emozionale attraverso divertenti esercizi di problem solving, collaborazione, apprendimento cooperativo, creatività ed espressione. In un clima di gioco e festa si vogliono porre le basi per il nuovo “cittadino del mondo”, amante di valori quali tollerenza, amicizia e comprensione culturale, ma che allo stesso tempo ha sviluppato importanti abilità di tipo comunicativo, responsabilità individuale, leadership e fiducia personale.

Le nostre attività      
Immersione nella lingua inglese con giochi, attività e laboratori artistico-creativi organizzati da insegnanti madrelingua dell’associazione Italo Americana del Friuli Venezia Giulia e American Corner Trieste.

Building on the historical idea of Trieste as a city of tolerance and diversity, this summer camp experience aims at nourishing and cultivating a new generation of “Global Citizens” focusing on the principles of leadership, cultural understanding, diversity, personal responsibility, friendship, and character development.

Children ages 4-10 will learn new skills while enhancing their emotional intelligence through small and large-group activities encouraging problem solving, collaboration, cooperative learning, creativity and personal expression. The core subject areas are: English language immersion, Art, Theater, and Dance. Each week a specific theme will be chosen and addressed in all subject areas and extra-curricular activities.

In Collaborazione con:
Il progetto nasce dallo sforzo congiunto di più associazioni non-profit presenti sul territorio triestino che si sono unite per poter offrire questo programma innovativo e che rappresentano, già di per sé, un modello di coesione, comprensione e cooperazione.

Collaborano per la realizzazione del Summer Lab: Associazione Culturale il Cerchio Aperto, Associazione Italo Americana del Friuli Venezia Giulia / American Corner Trieste, Associazione Sportiva Dilettantistica Annalisa Danze, ACTIS (Associazione Culturale Teatro Immagine Suono) e Zoe Food che fornirà le succulente bio-merende e presenterà dei simpatici laboratori sul gusto.
