Abstract / This contribution aims to present an educational experience designed for both kindergarten and primary school.

Thanks to experimentation and collaboration, the students have faced many mathematical and technical aspects in order to construct a wooden cart suitable for the purpose.

Keywords: laboratory; collaboration; realistic situation; vertical curriculum.
