About this event
The event will involve a group of about fifty pupils attending the last class at the Italian Middle school “ISC del Tronto e Valfluvione”. Among them, a group of 9 pupils is involved in the 2018-2019 session of the Robot Game “First LEGO League” (http://fll-italia.it/fll_home.jsp), whose 2018/19 theme is “Into Orbit”: “Have your team identify a human physical or social problem faced during long duration space exploration within our Sun’s solar system and propose a solution”.
In the framework of that activities, the event will consist of a series of three videoconference calls of half an hour each, during which the following topics related to long duration space explorations will be discussed:
- History of human space programs
- Physical, social and technical risks related to human space exploration
- 3D printing as a powerful tool in long-duration space exploration
