The project presented here was first implemented in the spaces of Assab One, Milan, in July 2009. On this occasion, the various aspects of the implementation process ( the game-learning one, the pedagogical features, etc.) were refined and an assessment was made of the adaptability of the project in terms of space, the current needs of the supervisors, and the ” focus” that can be given to the whole project (understanding science, preserving the environment, etc.).
