Welcome to the Epi-Centre of Science!
The Epi-Centre of Science is a unique place, full of passion for science. Here, fun and learning crave come together to awaken your creativity and curiosity.
By entering the Epi-Centre, you are stepping into a world where the word "boredom" does not exist. Experiences, experiments, modern technologies, workshops – there is always something going on here! All stands are described in detail. Apart from operating instructions, there are also scientific explanations, which is why our offer perfectly complements the school curriculum. All of the zones have been designed so that everyone can find something for themselves – from a toddler, through a teenager, to an adult. It's never too late to learn ... or too early!
The Epi-Centre of Science consists of two separate areas, which are located next to each other at the City Stadium in Białystok. The first of them – Little Explorer’s Zone – covers nearly 600 sqm. It is where our brand heroes – Zmysłek and Majka Pytajka – await visitors. The second area (2,670 sqm) hosts the Main Exhibition, temporary exhibitions, as well as offices and a conference room.
Little Explorer’s Zone is a colourful educational space created with children in mind. This place is intended primarily for children aged 3 to 10 years, that is, preschoolers and younger students of primary schools. The Little Explorer’s Zone has five thematic areas: Learning and knowledge, Discover your body, Technology, Construction world, Water energy, Little Explorer’s Laboratory. All experiments and games are adapted to children’s perception, giving them the opportunity to explore the world of science.
The Main Exhibition is very large and versatile. It can accommodate up to 200 people at the same time! Its versatility is proven by the fact that everyone, regardless of age, will find something interesting: young and old, children and adults, students and teachers. The main exhibition area is 2,670 sqm – it’s the equivalent of 50 classrooms. Quite large, isn’t it? It has more than 100 experiment stations. There are no fixed routes. Everyone will be able to decide what path to take and at what pace to move.
The main exhibition has several thematic areas. You will find stations covering fields, such as optics, transport, telecommunications, medicine, automation, robotics, mechanics and many others. Each area has a different design referring to the presented subject matter. When starting your journey along experiment stations, you will be transported to a different world – the world of learning through experience. More than two thousand years ago, Confucius said: “Tell me and I will forget, show me and I may remember, involve me and I will understand.”
We want your visit at the Epi-Centre of Science to remain in your memory and inspire you to use the acquired knowledge and experiments in everyday life, work, school and free time.
