Premio Asimov 2020

15.05.2020

Ci sono delle cose belle che ho voglia di raccontare, e questa è una di quelle.

Un premio, un concorso in cui tanti ragazzi si mettono in gioco, sostenuti dai loro docenti. Un’opportunità di mostrare al mondo che la nostra gioventù c’è e sa pensare, sa decidere, sa presentare idee ed opinioni.

L’idea è quella di promuovere l’apprendimento delle materie scientifiche tramite la diffusione di testi di divulgazione scientifica, chi sceglierà il libro vincitore saranno i ragazzi.

Complimenti all’ideatore di questo premio Francesco Vissani. Per saperne di più vi incoraggio a visitare il sito del premio e farvi “un giretto” tra le tavole rotonde in cui i ragazzi selezionati da tutta l’Italia hanno fatto la presentazione delle loro recensioni.

Published by Epsiloc - Enjoy Little things

Epsiloc welcomes you and invites you to enjoy little things, every day of your life, in everything you do. Those little things that might be so imperceptible that you might miss if you don’t look for them, but they are there and they make all the difference. Epsiloc comes from the Greek letter epsilon, which is used in physics for a quantity which is infinitesimal. In other words, it is so small which is almost zero and normally is neglected. But when it is put at the denominator of a fraction ensures that the fraction still makes sense. So, it is a very small quantity that is almost zero, but the fact of being there makes all the difference. This is true for all the fractions, and everybody calls is epsilon. Epsiloc takes the same concept but instead of the “n” at the end there is a C, and it makes all the difference… Epsiloc represents all my personal little things that make all the difference in my life, and invites, encourage, teaches you how to find your own. The path is not easy at every step you take, but always worth your effort. So, we can say that this is simply my personal website, in which you will find here the ways I can support you with, to find your own personal little moments to enjoy. Step by step. In every moment of your life. - C like Ceramics and pottery – creating from clay - C like Coaching Counting Celebrations of personal life - C like Creative and autobiographical writing - C like Common misunderstandings about maths and science - C like Casina in fondo all’orto, the children and pets friendly house I rent in Tuscany There are many other personal C in my epsilocs, like Children, Chocolate and Carbon etc, but those will remain in my Private Garden, so you will not find them here. ABOUT ME Ceramist, writer, scientist, teacher and chocolate lover. I am practicing ceramics since the age of 16, I followed courses in Italy, UK, South Africa and Belgium. Since December 2017 I have my own little atelier where I keep experimenting new techniques and where I give ceramics courses. Born in southern Italy, I grew up in Rome and I spent my summers in the countryside. I studied physics in Rome and in 1996 I move to Cambridge (UK) where I got both a PhD in nanotechnology and a 1-year certificate in Creative Writing. I them moved to South Africa where I have kept my passion for ceramics and creative writing, and I wrote my second book. I now live in Brussels where I teach maths and science, give ceramics courses and I coach clients to let emerge the best of them selves
