Hi i’m Marcello Carandina class of 2020 at Liceo Roiti and I now attend the Physics faculty of the University of Ferrara. I like listening to music, mainly rock and metal, but I’m also a big nerd for fantasy stories or Dungeons & Dragons. I’ve always had an interest for how do things work and therefore I always liked physics. This is the fourth year I partecipate in the HoPE, while also taking part in the EDW of 2020, and let me tell you, it has been a blast from the beginning! Working “hands on” turns physics from applied math into magic, creating something mesmerizing from simple stuff like wood and LEDs, while deepening your knowledge of how our world works, and growing as a person. I myself four years ago was really shy and insecure, and with HOPE I made tons of friends and learnt that through some planning and enough effort anyone can do great things. And if you can’t make it don’t worry, you just got to try again, as making mistakes is the best way to learn.
