Scienza on the road in Second life
Second Life has begun attracting educators with the potential of providing an immersive and interactive experience for students and for all the people who are fond of scientific subjects.
Second Physicsand Immersiva.2Life have organised "Scienza on the Road" a sort of travelling workshop whose aim is to spread the knowledge of physics and other sciences within SecondLife.
The concept behind this project is to bring in the metaverse a series of conversations about science and technology in a very easy to understand way , trying to involve at most the audience in order to promote the popularization of Science.
Each subject will be developed through discussions mainly focused on the discoveries and inventions, doubts and mysteries of the universe , both the one we live in and the one inside of us.
During last year these lectures have already been successfully hold in 32 lands inworld gathering an audience of more than1500 people .
This year the tour will be repeated with a wider group of lecturers: everyone of them will deal with different subjects such as physics,mathematics, astronomy, neurology, but also scientific literature, restoration of artworks and medicine .
