I Investigate
Practical 1 hour workshops

Children between 4 and 7 years old
Playing with polymers
What are polymers? Where are they? In this workshop we will find out about their properties and we will manufacture one that we can take home: slime!
Lights, colour ... action!
We will experiment with chromatography and explain the mysteries of light and its colours just as Newton did with his colour chart.

Children between 8 and 12 years old
Chemistry in Action
We will discover how small atoms are, how they come together to form molecules and – the most fun – how they react!
Climate Change
What role does CO2 play in climate change? What is acid rain? We will discover the answer through colourful experiments.


In the laboratory of Life
Scientific storyteller
Children from 4 to 8 years
Ana GALARRAGA Elhuyar Fundazioa, Basque Country
Ana Galarraga Aiestaran, scientific communicator for Elhuyar and author of the book Bizitzaren laborategian (“In the Laboratory of Life”) offers this show in a storytelling format with live experiments. The author tells us curious stories, mixed with experiments that aim to arouse curiosity, presenting the most playful aspects of science, and transmitting values such as equality, respect, teamwork, perseverance and recognising and taking responsibility for mistakes. In addition, all experiments are designed so that they can be reproduced by the children in their homes, employing commonly used materials.
