Educational activities

The Museo Nazionale dell’Automobile proposes a new program of educational activities dedicated to schools of all levels, families and the general public to spread automobile culture – from its origins to the mobility of the future – stimulating a reflection on the evolution of our society and the challenges to come.
The primary objective is heritage education as an opportunity to meet and activate processes of participation, active citizenship and social inclusion.

SCHOOLS

In addition to laboratory activities, traditional guided tours and interactive guided tours are available which offer micro in-depth activities along the exhibition itinerary. Each itinerary will be structured with particular attention to the study topics and further personalized at the request of teachers and visitor groups. Find out how to enrich your school curriculum with a unique educational experience at Museo Nazionale dell’Automobile.

Students reduction 3€

For classes coming to the Museum without doing activities or guided tours. Teachers accompanying classes enter free of charge.

Kindergarten, Primary and Middle School

For kindergartens and primary schools, MAUTO, in collaboration with ARTECO, offers an interactive guided tour along the exhibition path with a final and collective return in the Museum Piazza. Mediators accompany children to discover the Museum: from the history of the vehicle and its evolution through stories and travel diaries, to the study of forms and design, underlining the links with city and world history.

Educational activities are also developed through tactile supports and are dedicated to the active involvement of children, accompanying them in reflections that stimulate critical thinking and a look at contemporary society.

TRADITIONAL OR INTERACTIVE GUIDED TOUR

From the coach to the car of the future

An itinerary that takes place in time and space: the museum’s collection is the starting point for a multisensory and laboratory exploration that allows children to discover how the means of transport have changed over time in relation to the transformations of the world around us. An interactive visit where you can observe, touch and reason.

INTERACTIVE GUIDED TOUR

Today I invent

From the Renaissance to modernity, the idea of the machine has made us think and inspired the visions of artists, architects and designers who have left a mark on the world of culture by combining technique and imagination. Leonardo da Vinci’s prototype in the museum kicks off an experiential journey made up of ideas, suggestions and participatory activities, inspired by those who have looked to the future in a unique way.

INTERACTIVE GUIDED TOUR

Car: source of inspiration

Through the works of historical and contemporary artists, classes can discover how the car, a symbol of modernity and a catalyst for collective experiences, can provide unexpected inspirations. Girls and boys will be able to share ideas, memories and feelings by experimenting with different languages. A path made up of colours, movements, sounds and intuitions.

TRADITIONAL GUIDED TOUR + LABORATORY

Design in search of an author

Through child-tailored graphic and digital production tools, we will experiment with design and creativity by shaping our ideas, and with the help of 3D printing we will try to understand the complex transition from digital to physical.

TRADITIONAL GUIDED TOUR + LABORATORY

Digital paths

Milo is a Lego WeDo 2.0 rover that can move independently: an all-in-one solution to enjoy the practical experience of programming, electronics and robotics. Let’s have fun programming it on different routes each time, disassembling it and reassembling it without limits to the imagination.

Secondary School

For first and second grade secondary schools, the activities already in place with the students of the Polytechnic of Turin (MAUTO Lab Experience) continue. The laboratories provide a complete STEAM experience and are an opportunity to talk about mechanics and physics, coding and electronics, the Internet of vehicles and autonomous vehicles, environmental sustainability and safety.

INTERACTIVE GUIDED TOUR

Electric Car

How does an electric car work? Let’s start with the construction of a Volta pile to understand the physical and chemical phenomena of the electric motor and the rechargeable battery. An interactive activity allows us to reflect on the energy advantages and disadvantages of electric cars and on future scenarios.

INTERACTIVE GUIDED TOUR

Hydrogen Car

A struggle is underway between hydrogen and electricity with the aim of replacing internal combustion engines. Let’s start with the analysis of fuel cells to discover the possible developments of a major contender in the challenge to become the low-emission vehicle of the future.

TRADITIONAL GUIDED TOUR + LABORATORY

Autonomous Driving

Self-driving cars are now a reality. By programming mBot, a robot capable of moving autonomously, we will discover the characteristics that a vehicle must have to perceive space, process information and choose how to behave in a given environment.

TRADITIONAL GUIDED TOUR + LABORATORY

The Physics of Safety

Using the second principle of dynamics, we will understand why seat belts are important but not enough in the car, making the airbag also essential. By programming a four-wheeled robot we will experience how safety is synonymous with attention.

INTERACTIVE GUIDED TOUR

Roaring Motors

From the beginning, the internal combustion engine was the beating heart of a car, pushing them to incredible speeds and fueling the fantasies of children and adults with its characteristic sound. In this laboratory we discover how it is made, analyzing its numerous components, the different fuels that power it and how it has evolved over time to become more efficient and less polluting.

INTERACTIVE GUIDED TOUR

The Future under Discussion

A simulation activity specifically dedicated to secondary school students who will be able to play the different actors involved in the complicated contemporary and international balance related to the issues of sustainability, environmental protection and combating climate change.
