Step into the cool, fun village of the little scientists to awaken your curiosity and discover an active experimental way of learning that encourages everyone to participate. Teachers and group leaders at community centres will be able to reproduce this fun world with everyday objects and materials.
Activity no. 1: Man and electricity - three centuries of discoveries!
Where does this incredibly useful energy source come from? What happens inside a battery?
Activity no. 2: Hi there, climate! All well?
Explore phenomena linked to climate change known and unknown, and look at the atmosphere from a different perspective!
Activity no. 3: Biological diversity and soil composition - what's under our feet?
Come and discover underground phenomena, and the impact of the modifications made by us humans.
Activity no. 4: The alchemy of colours
Discover secondary colours by learning how to master primary colours! What if colours were not only a physical thing, but a chemical one too?
Activity no. 5: Balance, our sixth sense
Who can hold a skewer horizontally without touching it? A few basic laws of physics will help you out.
Activity no. 6: May the force - of water - be with you!
A waterfall of amusing experiments to explore Archimedes’ principle, to discover the different states of water, buoyancy and much more in an intuitive and playful way!
Activity no. 7: The Minotaur’s Labyrinth
Magnetism and magnets have tickled our curiosity since the beginning of time. Explore lots of games and experiences with these little intriguing objects.
Activity no. 8: Beware of the jellyfish!
How do fish swim at a constant depth without sinking or rising to the surface? Create your very own ‘jellyfish’ which moves up and down in an ‘aquarium’, as if it were alive!
Activity no. 9: Fun chemistry experiments
Mix baking soda with vinegar and get ready for a surprising reaction, make small explosions or learn how to clean coins... You will have a blast, guaranteed!
Activity no. 10: Biodiversity near or far?
Discover the countless living beings that surround us in a creative setting!
Activity no. 11: Cushion the fall!
A parachute is a lifesaver, but how does it work? Build your very own (small) parachute and test it out in free fall.
Activity no. 12: Electronic ‘bugs’
Come and meet a pack of little electronic ‘monsters’ created by young, resourceful scientists! They will explain all the secrets of this ‘home-made’ production focused on creativity, recycling and affordability.
Activity no. 13: Being human - living together: the Zinneke experience
A set of scientific experiments that will show you the link between the ‘categorisation’ and the development of stereotypes and prejudices that can lead to discrimination or racism.
Activity no. 14: Germs: friends or foes? Let’s put them under the microscope with Rosalind and Alexander!
Step into the fascinating world of germs and carry out 1001 experiments to get to know and tame germs, our friends and foes. An activity for the whole family.
