Alongside real Escuelab researchers, children will discover everything about the scientific method, learning to design your own experiments. With fun workshops and exciting challenges, they will learn science in a fun way, learning skills such as critical thinking and teamwork.

The objective is to associate science with positive experiences and consolidate knowledge in an interactive and fun way. Foster fundamental 21st century skills such as creativity, critical thinking and accompany the development of self-motivation, self-esteem, in addition to improving teamwork, cooperation and sociability.

Weeks 1 and 3:

  • The scientific method: children learn and apply the steps used in the scientific method, as well as the concepts of experimental design and inclusion of controls, with experiments to find out which substances make eggs bounce.
  • Physics everywhere! They will learn about energy and forces while building ingenious objects to experiment with parachutes.
  • Little engineers: children become engineers for a day, learning about forces, gravity or speed, while solving fun challenges in which they learn to control their frustration in the face of difficulties.
  • Field notebook: In addition to enjoying different games and sports in the Vicálvaro sports centre, they will visit its forest park, where they will discover everything related to animals and rocks.

  • Wonders of biology: children will learn about the characteristics of the oceans and perform simulations to understand how fossils are formed.
  • Surprising chemistry: children explore properties such as the acidic or basic nature of substances, as well as chemical energy, while having fun and developing their creativity while making, for example, a model volcano that erupts.
  • Field notebook: in addition to enjoying different games and sports in the Vicálvaro sports centre, they will visit its forest park, where they will discover everything related to forest and plant ecosystems.
