Little ones can do more? Of course! And not just at the playground.
Epi-Centre of Science is a colourful educational space created with children in mind. This place is intended primarily for children aged 3 to 10 years, that is, pre-schoolers and younger students of primary schools.
Zmysłek and Majka Pytajka know well that children learn through play. They will accompany them during guided tours and show how to use the surprises prepared for them. There is a large clock, abacus with beads and in app form, pipe mazes and lever. The guides, showing giant soap bubbles and optical illusions, will awake children’s curiosity and inquisitiveness. And, as always, they will explain complex phenomena and concepts in an accessible way.
But wait... Who is Majka Pytajka caressing?
This is Receptorek, pet robot of the main characters who will help children learn through play and experience.
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 the them the opportunity to explore the world of science.
Zmysłek will tell you a secret: you do not have to know how to read to use most of the stations!
It really is large – 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 m2 – 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 different design referring to the presented subject matter. Which one, according to you, symbolizes gears?
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.
