The Red Hot Pepper Machine

Il modello "Red Hot Pepper Machine" mostra in modo spettacolare ma accurato il meccanismo di funzionamento di un'importante classe di recettori cellulari, consentendo così la diffusione di soggetti biomedici rilevanti a un vasto pubblico. Il modello è anche un prototipo per un'applicazione combinata di robotica, meccanica e informatica, con l'obiettivo di coinvolgere entrambe le scuole in collaborazioni su argomenti originali e dare origine a applicazioni pratiche in campo educativo o museale. Rappresenta uno strumento efficace per aumentare l'impatto dei soggetti sottostanti e la diffusione delle relative informazioni.

Pietro Amodeo (ICB-CNR), Francesco Castelluccio (ICB-CNR), Salvatore Donadio (ICB-CNR), Salvatore Mallardo (IPCB-CNR) – by: MoSeF – ICB-CNR, IPCB-CNR

Dr Pietro Amodeo is CNR Senior Researcher at the Institute of Biomolecular Chemistry, Pozzuoli (NA). His research fields are Computational Chemistry and Cheminformatics. In 2015 he founded MoSeF (“Molecole Senza Frontiere”, Molecules Without Borders, http://mosef.na.cnr.it), a network of institutions interested in promoting the knowledge of Chemistry and its relationships with other disciplines and everyday life. MoSeF designs and realizes exhibits and activities targeted for events such as science festivals or exhibitions. The activities are generally designed to maximize interactivity and involvement and to suit to the widest ranges of ages and skills of participants. MoSeF involves in its activities partners from very different areas, like schools, cultural associations and private companies. In particular, schools are deeply involved in the overall projects, since students are trained in our labs and/or at school (with the contribution of personnel from MoSeF network) and then employed to demonstrate experiments, activities and exhibits during the public events. Dr Amodeo has coordinated MoSeF participations to several local and international Science Festivals and exhibition, including four editions of the eldest European Science Festival, “Futuro Remoto” in Naples, one edition of “Festival della Scienza” in Genoa, the Opening Ceremony of the “Corporea” Museum at “Città della Scienza” in Naples.
