Chaos for high school students

In this paper an innovative Edutainment (education plus entertainment) laboratory on Chaos for high school students is presented, promoting the awareness that art and contemporary science have a common matrix. In particular, the setting foresees the physical construction of Chua’s circuit, its simulation on a computer, as well as the production of three-dimensional attractors and music. The software that allows the visualization of chaotic phenomena and their use as artistic products is “Chaos Explorer”, and it has been ideated, designed and realized by Evolutionary Systems Group at Università della Calabria (Italy). An experimentation involving Leonardo’s network is in progress.
