IISS Fortunato Fedele

Istituto d’Istruzione Superiore “Fortunato Fedele” is an upper secondary school in Sicily, southern Italy. Our 600 students are aged 14-19 and we provide them with different fields of study, such as technology (electronics and electrotecnics, environmental biotechnologies) administration (tourism
and business), human sciences, vocational (culinary and hotel hospitality). We operate in four different little towns in central Sicily: Agira, Gagliano, Regalbuto and Centuripe.
Its paid staff consists of 88 teachers and 24 others (headmaster, administrative, janitors, cleaners).
Our school has been engaged in developing technologies in the era of Industry 4.0. Our students have recently taken part in an international competition on Robotics, “Robocup” and won the second place, they have also experimented new strategies on environmental issues via STEM
approach in collaboration with students of other countries. Participation in this project is especially intended for those students engaged in the study of human sciences (Agira).
Since the core idea of this project is how to increase our students’ awareness of widespread bad alimentary habits in our social context, even at school, which leads to continuous communication and self-acceptance disorders, we would like to provide our students with specific tools to reach to a personal competence in healthy nutrition and well-being.
In our school in Agira, many students are overweight and we teachers would like to give a stop to this phenomenon thanks to a timely educational
intervention such as the one contained in this project. In fact, the solution to most problems starts primarily from knowledge. To this end, our
programming of anatomy, biology and chemistry will be directed towards this important topic.
The key persons in charge of running the project in our school should be – Marco Lupo (English teacher, experienced in Erasmus projects) – Prospero Muni (Maths and Science teacher, English speaker, experienced in IT) – Giovanna Ollà (Biology and Chemistry teacher).
