Despite being an Educational Center, our main focus is on learning (a natural and very personal process) and not so much on education itself (a process that tends to be reductive and massive).
Obviously, we guarantee and reiterate the education given by the family and the school, especially with regard to: respect for others and for the material goods of others, social friendliness, responsibility for their actions, and emotional intelligence. At all times, we also take the opportunity to reinforce environmental concerns, as well as to raise awareness about basic principles of personal hygiene (especially in the present context: how to wash and dry hands, and why), and about hygiene and safety ofspaces and common access devices.
LEARNING is done at the individual pace, at the level of each individual, depending on the interests and motivations that lead to the desire to learn, regardless of age.
Despite being a personal process, it improves significantly if each step is supported by someone you trust, in a relaxed atmosphere and through playful and appealing processes that make sense and respond in a clear, simple (but rigorous) way to doubts or questions that may arise.
An interdisciplinary approach and a project-based learning methodology help to ensure that learning takes place in a consistent and lasting way, supported by the educational and ethical pillars that inspire us: simplicity, humility, confidence, scientific rigor, curiosity, communication, sustainability, replicability, and creativity.
Mission and Objectives
STELLARIA arose from the desire to complement what traditional basic schooling can offer, with more playful and interdisciplinary activities ( STEM, STEAM and STREAM * methodologies) and learning through projects, anchored in sustainability principles and solid social values.
We seek to encourage natural and spontaneous learning, in an iterative spiral of learning-consolidation, without deadlines, without grades, without pressure, at the pace of each young participant but centered on team spirit and sharing knowledge and skills.
* STEM Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths
STEAM Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Maths
STR.EAM Science, Technology, Reading, Arts, Engineering and Maths
Helping young people to develop curiosity and receptiveness to new intellectual challenges.
Detect and exploit potential innate scientific, musical or artistic skills and talents that traditional schooling systems do not have the time or resources to do.
Support and advise families of young people with specific talent (scientific, musical or artistic) on the potential attitudes, responses and strategies they can adopt in order to better support talented young people to evolve in a balanced and stimulating way.
