Teach, Inspire, Change the Future


The Piccola Accademia di Gagliato delle Nanoscienze (NanoPiccola) is the junior arm of the Accademia di Gagliato Globale. In Gagliato, the NanoPiccola youth STEM festival is held alongside the NanoGagliato. Each summer, NanoPiccola offers children between the ages of 5 and 14 the opportunity to discover the exciting possibilities of nanotechnology and other scientific disciplines, meet with role models and mentors in a variety of STEM fields, and do age-appropriate hands-on experiments under the guidance of AGG volunteers.
