INGV calendar for school G. D'Addezio

Short summary
This summary of 10 years of INGV’s calendar competitions for primary schools describes an experience of Earth science education through drawings. We have asked children to send drawings about Earth sciences and the dynamics of planet Earth. In addition to the competition, the drawings reflect impressions and thoughts and illustrate the children’s point of view. One can sense a great sensitivity, consideration, responsiveness and respect for the planet and a positive feeling towards science.
