Story of the Experimental Science Laboratory of Foligno
The Experimental Science Laboratory of Foligno was built in the sixties. It was initially built to provide refresher training for primary and secondary school teachers. It later offered refresher courses for science teachers at national level. Over time it has been equipped with a remarkable variety and quantity of equipment and materials related to Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Optics, Acoustics, Geography and Geology. At the end of the eighties the laboratory was barely being used due to staff shortages and was attended by the local schools of Foligno and the surrounding areas, thanks to the voluntary availablility and commitment of some teachers.
