IIS Città della Vittoria has a very advanced and recognized experience in technical education: ITIS in particular in recent years developed a significant number of “extra-ordinary” (afternoon) experiences: 1) robotics: groups of students participated in “NAO challenge” and in “first Lego League” competitions, with very good results; 2) business competition: a group of students, partially coming also from other schools in Vittorio Veneto, participated in a business competition in the framework of an ESF Funded project , where they won the first prize; 3) TECNICAMENTE project idea competition: promoted by Adecco, where students apply with an idea and the evaluation commission is composed by teachers and companies and the winner obtain the possibility of stages abroad; 4) Association School Lab: it is an association composed by teachers, parents and other subjects of the territory who activates, together with fund raising action in order to buy crucial equipment for didactic activities (bypassing bureaucracy), 2 different competition each year, one dedicated to a specific technological tasks (this year is creating a digital clock!) and one open to every technological idea; 5) Project CAME : it is a specific company-sponsored project where a class is involved in creating ideas and where a single student is ensured an apprenticeship paths within the firm. It is worth to say that within ITIS there are some profiles (web programming, web design, robotics, etc…) requiring more creativity than others (accountancy, financial administration, etc…), but the plan of the school is to give every student the opportunity to explode his or her creative side.
