In this panorama, the training objectives of the IRC, placing man in his entirety as the center of attention and developing skills of a cognitive, emotional and social nature, contributes to the training of boys and girls to promote a humanistic educational dimension, aware that today the The concept of Citizenship does not only concern the relationship between the individual and the territory but the protection of a broader ecosystem which includes man within it: the relationship between man and the environment and the relationship between man and man. A particular look is given to the critical analysis of the relationship between Science and Faith through which we want to investigate the ethical and anthropological questions that the developments of science and technology raise in boys and girls and in general in today's time and society .
