codice fiscale
A desk for foreign students

 

From today, September 3rd, to September 21st will be set up the temporary desk for the issue of the fiscal code to foreign students, who are arriving for the new academic year. Thanks to an agreement between the university and the Italian Agency of Revenue (Agenzia delle Entrate), also in 2018 newly enrolled foreign students will be able to integrate in Italy more easily.

In this way, in fact, foreign citizens who arrive in Turin for studying, teaching or research will be able to get the fiscal code straight in Corso Duca degli Abruzzi, at the enrolment office of the Politecnico di Torino, without going to the Italian Agency of Revenue. This is the second year the students have been given this opportunity, thanks to the good results of last year: in 2017, in fact, during 12 days in which the desk was open, 480 people used this service.

Getting a fiscal code is essential for a stay in Italy: not only is it the first step to enrol in university, but it is also useful for other practical aspects such as signing a rental contract, purchase of a SIM card for you telephone and much more.

The temporary desk will be open until 21st September 2018, from Monday to Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

BREAK/CUPS: I bicchierini da caffè Bibo reinventati dagli studenti del Politecnico

Break/Cups has been an Open Innovation project organised by the Innovation Design Lab (IDLab) for Bibo, the leading company in the production of disposable plastic for the food market.

 

The workshop involved 28 2nd and 3rd year-students of the bachelor’s degree in Design and Visual Communication and students of the master degree in Systemic Design of the Polytech of Turin (Politecnico di Torino) with the aim to develop a new and modern concept of the disposable coffee cups, trying to innovate the product, its communication and the services for its distribution and employ.

 

Starting from the needs , the problems and the productive limits, the lab guided the team from the definition of an analysis of the canvas and the pertinent guidelines up to the design of the final concepts.

 

The project teams developed 7 concepts on the theme of the research. These letter brought to the prototypal development of 3 disposable cups for vending machines, which currently are in an engineering phase for the beginning of the production, where team members succeeded in adding value and innovating different aspects which ranges from gestures, to spreading contents up to giving value to the consumed drink.

 

The results of the workshop can be seen in an exposition, opened from 10th to 12th May, at the Sala delle Colonne of the Castle of Valentino

Bambini e bambine studenti al Politecnico per un giorno

The initiative “Girls and Boys, a day as university students” is back

Also this year, the initiative “Girls and Boys, a day as university students” sponsored by the Municipality of Turin and the Universities of Turin will take place at the Polytech (Politecnico). Children will be involved in some activities inside the University in order to discover the world of the scientific and technological research. The project is sponsored by the Department of Education of the Municipality of Turin through the Turinese Institution for a Responsible Education (ITER).

From 7th to 9th May, some fourth-and fifth-grades classes of the primary school of Turin will be welcomed at the Polytech with a series of activities the purpose of which is to show to the children the research of the Polytech. Today, 8th May, at 9 a.m. children will be welcomed by the Dean Guido Saracco.

Then, they will get into the earth of the activity:

Vision and color

The laboratory proposes the culture of the vision as training stage of the children and of their personality; the activity allows children to experience vision and colour, measure and proportion with simple supports created ad hoc


Origami and shapes
The activity guides the children through the identification of simple shapes hidden in manufactured ones through a process of recognition and abstraction of significant elements. Their paper modelling allows to understand the theoretical geometrical fundamentals and to learn them in a simple and practical way


Rover DIANA

Children will have the chance to see a rover model in motion. In the coming years, the model will be brought to the Moon by the ITALIA team, a consortium of Italian companies and universities participating in the international competition Google Lunar X-Prize. The purpose of the vehicle is to cover at least 500m and to send to the Earth high-resolution images of an Apollo moon-landing site or of the ones of previous moon missions.


The suspended ball

Children will have the chance to make a bizarre experiment. Everyone knows that taking a little ball made with an iron sheet and letting it go, it will fall to the ground.

We also know that if we take a magnet, there is a magnetic force that attracts the balls and so the little ball will remain attached to the magnet.

But what if the magnetic force of the magnet is the same as the force that makes the ball fall?

It may seem a spell, but in this case the ball remains suspended in the space. Making an object levitate means maintain it lifted up in a stable position without touching it, like some illusionists do in their spectacles.


Inverse pendulum

If you put a pen upright on the palm of your hand, will you be able to make it stand just like a juggler would do? It isn’t that easy, but we could succeed in doing it for some seconds.


Lego Mindstorm

Here’s something you are more familiar with: the Lego bricks. But what do the Lego do at the Polytech?

In the Lego Mindstorm series there are not only bricks for building objects but also a little computer which can be programmed for making little engine move or for reading some sensors (which are contained in the bricks).

For example, we can build a toy-car that in front of a barrier can move back and steer, trying to bypass it.

In short, we only need a bit of fantasy and we can really invent lots of funny projects. During the activity, children will see in motion little Lego robots previously built.


Chemistry turns into electricity

The idea is to show how the science can be applied and obtain technological solution that we use daily. Also an apparently tough and difficult subject as the chemistry can become funny and magical.

So, some activities that can be realises directly by children are proposed:

  • realising a simple battery with everyday things ( copper and zinc in a lemon and measuring some electrical parameter or lighting a led)
  • split the water in hydrogen and oxygen using a solution of water and bicarbonate, two drawing pencils … and a battery

finally there will be an only demonstrative activity: variation of the volume of gas contained in balloons due to the lowering of the temperature with the employ of liquid nitrogen, or production of carbon dioxide due to the decomposition of calcium carbonate with an acid.


Team H2politO

It will be explained the functioning of an hybrid vehicle, with an electrical a thermal engine, which allows to consume less fuel. The vehicle has been projected for participating in student competitions of low consumes, where all the vehicles are devised and realised by student s who want to conceive the mobility in the city in a “greener” way.


Team racing

The Team Racing (Squadra Corse) is a student team of the Polytech of Turin which was created in the winter 2010 from the idea of 10 students who loved engineering and motorsport.

The aim is to project a competition single-seat car every year in order to take part in the Formula SAE Championship for students from the best Universities worldwide. The Championship was created in 1981 from the idea of the Society of Automotive Engineers.


POLICUMBENT

Are you curious about knowing which is the fastest bike of the world and why isn’t it used at the Giro d’Italia? Do you want to discover what a velomobile is?

The student team Policumbent studies, design and realises human-powered vehicles in order to face the sporty and the everyday mobility challenges. A research which is something in between science, engineering and sport for exploring the limits of human skills. Some of the realised prototypes and new projects will be exposed and presented and, with a bit of luck, there will be the chance to do a little pedalling.


HISTORY GROUP

It will be presented the scale model of the roof of the Castle of Valentino and there will be a little introduction of the story of the architecture of the Royal House of Savoy
