Discover science in science experiments a different and fun way, we will have a great time.

Scientific experiments for girls and boys, what do they consist of?

To know Science closely you need to practice and experiment to test the certainty of the hypotheses, in this way the boys and girls work as small scientists throughout the activity challenging the theories proposed in a rigorous and objective way.

They will perform scientific experiments, simple and fun with materials that we can easily find at home. The proposals for scientific activities for children will be adapted to their age group and knowledge and, of course, will always be carried out under the supervision of qualified personnel.Bring science closer to the youngest in a practical and fun way.Facilitate the learning of complex aspects of these subjects.Develop scientific and critical thinking.Encourage participants’ interest in Science.Promote the importance of the scientific community today.Increase the participation of women in the world of science with, for example, Marie Curie’s inventions for boys and girls.Ages

This workshop is aimed at children between 8 and 16 years old, who will be organized into 3 different groups, according to their previous level:Curie I: PoloniumCurie II: RadioCurie III: Curio.

If you have not had the opportunity to verify scientific phenomena, it is even more difficult to imagine or study them, which is why it is essential to see it for yourself and yourself from the first moment. By introducing science as a first-person experience, receptivity to learning increases, as the learner becomes the creator of their learning. That’s why we’ve created our Marie Curie experiments for girls and boys.

The scientific experiments for girls and boys that we have prepared are a fun practice that helps them understand the nature of the environment around them, with an active and contextualized methodology. With their direct involvement in the processes they learn about (as agents of the experiments), we make this teaching meaningful and lasting over time, not a boring exam that is learned by heart and forgotten later.In addition to wanting to bring science closer to children, we have the mission of empowering the female sector within the scientific world with our Marie Curie children’s project, in which until now there has been a very important gender gap.

For this reason, and as a small tribute to all the women scientists who had to fight to obtain their achievements and to be recognized, the three levels of the scientific experiment workshop are named in honor of the legacy that Marie Curie left us.

Below you can enjoy a brief biography of this great scientist who made possible a breakthrough for Science and won a Nobel Prize thanks to her discoveries.

Since childhood, Marie dreamed of being a scientist, encouraged by the professions of her parents, both science teachers.

Marie studied Physics and Chemistry at the Sorbonne University in Paris. After finishing her studies she began her work in a research group at the Sorbonne, there, she met her husband Pierre, with whom she would form a great team, they turned their house into a laboratory where they investigated radioactive elements.

During her years of studies and research, Marie became the first woman to teach at a university and discovered several radioactive elements of the periodic table such as polonium and radium. Thanks to these discoveries he was the first person to obtain two Nobel prizes, one in Physics and another in Chemistry.

“Marie Curie’s work in the world of science is with us today. She created an Institute where women and girls can follow in her footsteps. Thanks to his discoveries, there are medical techniques for detecting X-rays.His discoveries were so important that years after his death, American scientists synthesized a new element in the periodic table and named it Curio in honor of Marie and Pierre.
