We believe education for kids should be engaging and fun. This is why we always look for every available opportunity for teachers and schools.

This time we want you to know about an interesting public funding for elementary and middle schools made available by the Italian Government. Regione Campania (The Naples county/region in Italy) will distribute a total of € 700.000,00 to schools residing in a European Union country.
