School? Teacher? Headteacher? We’re looking for you! Ministry of Education doc

Bring your creative and original idea to Call for Schools and introduce it with your school to the public of the 10th edition of Maker Faire Rome 2022.

Since its first edition in 2013, Maker Faire Rome has given space to the creativity of young people – the true, incredible wealth of our country – and enhanced the constant commitment and dedication of all teachers who contribute on a daily basis to making the talents and qualities of all students shine through innovative initiatives, projects and educational programmes.

The Call for Schools is organized in collaboration with the Ministry of Education.

The objective of Call for Schools

Call for Schools 2022 aims to promote innovation among schools through the dissemination of digital culture and the development of individual and collective entrepreneurship, rewarding the projects deemed most worthy.
Participation in Call for Schools 2022 is free and open to all Italian upper secondary schools and similar schools belonging to the European Union (students aged 14-18 years).

The exhibition event will take place from 7 to 9 October 2022 in person.

Conferences, workshops, webinars and other training and information events will be held mainly digitally, also on dates other than those indicated above.

Bring your school to #MFR2022: join Call for Schools by June 26th July 11st (deadline extended)!

Call for Schools is held in collaboration with the Ministry of Education.

A jury of experts will select the most innovative projects, forged at the school desk, and the selected institutes will be able to participate in #MFR2022 and make use of a free exhibition space.

The event has been designed as a hybrid event, with some activities being held on-site, in compliance with the regulations and safety measures in force at the time, and other activities delivered in a digital, multi-channel, virtual format.
The Organiser undertakes to reimburse accommodation costs directly incurred by each individual Institute attending the Event in person. The Organiser also undertakes to partly reimburse according to the event Rules any Italian institutions (upon presentation of suitable supporting documentation) for the travel expenses incurred to attend the event.

Participating in Maker Faire Rome is not only culturally enriching, but also a lot of fun.

Selected projects will be introduced to the wider public through coverage in national and international newspapers, radio and television.
