Archeology - a new scientific workshop for children 7-14 years old

In 2 hours your child will:

1

Reveal ancient secrets through scientific experiments
2

Learn to save findings for the future
3

Become familiar with the methods of deciphering ancient texts
4

Learn to appreciate the past and its artifacts

About the workshop

This workshop will appeal to all passionate collectors of beautiful stones and shells. We will excavate, find the ancient city, learn its history through curious finds, and we will master the methods of cleaning and conservation of the treasures found.
  • Excavation Lab
    We will dig in the same way that real archaeologists do: we will find out what tools are used for it and how to get the finds out of the ground without damaging them.
  • Restoration Lab
    We will learn about archaeological restoration work: how to properly clean finds from the ground, and become familiar with the working methods of restorers.
  • Conservation Lab
    We will study the preparation process and create with our own hands the necessary preservatives and other solutions to process our finds before transferring them to the museum.
  • Decipher ancient languages Lab
    We discovered the method to decipher ancient languages and translate a text from the past.

64 CHILDREN PARTICIPATE IN ONE EVENT
There are 4 teams, 16 people each. Every team visits every one of the 4 labs. Our program is totally interactive and children make the experiments on their own.

The program was developed by young scientists and science popularizers from the best universities in the world. Students, graduates and young scientists from universities in Barcelona are conducting the program.

In the laboratories, classes are taught in Spanish or Catalan. Sometimes there are also groups in English - check the schedule!


For everybody's convenience, we split our teams in two age groups: 7-10 and 11-14. The topics considered in different groups are the same, but the presentation is slightly different, and the children are always more comfortable surrounded by their peers.

PARENTS WILL NOT GET BORED
We make a separate program for the parents where you can learn new things and have fun at the same time. The speaker will present in Spanish, but the text on the key slides will be in three languages - Spanish, Russian, English - it will be clear and interesting to everyone.

IMPORTANT! Before each event, we carry out a small quest. We advise you to come half an hour before the start in order to have time to participate in it.
Quest in the lobby
Before each program, we conduct a small, but very interesting and informative quest on the topic of the program. The quest is designed for children to pass it along with their parents.

We advise you to come half an hour before the start of the program in order to have time to participate in it!

GENERAL INFORMATION

We offer interactive events and courses on natural sciences for children of 5-6, 7-10 and 11-13 years and their parents.
Each event is a brief introductory course on chemistry, physics, biology, medicine and other sciences.

In January 2019 we launched the first event for children and their parents from and around Barcelona. The scientific monitors who guide children into the programs are real young scientists from the best universities in Barcelona.
WHAT ARE THE EVENTS LIKE

Each program consists of four labs where children conduct various experiments. Each team spends 20 minutes in each lab — this time is enough to get the theory and make an experiment.

If the program has a slot for kids 5-6 years old, we make for them a separate program with simpler but spectacular experiences, in which children can sometimes participate. The show also contains interactive games and dances.

Meanwhile, the parents are involved in adult program - interactive quiz and a short lecture on the same topic that the main program.


LANGUAGE

In the laboratories, classes are taught in Spanish or Catalan. Sometimes there are also groups in English - check the schedule! You also can gather a group of 16 children (for example, in your school), and then the classes in the laboratories will be in English. Please contact us if you are interested in it!
MAIN FEATURES

We chose the current format for a reason. Here are our main points:
  • 1
    Interactivity
    We think that children understand natural sciences better when they conduct experiments. Once a child operates a mannequin, he/she learns more about human body than after a lecture on anatomy.
  • 2
    Scientificity
    We don't consider science throwing dry ice into water, loud explosions or colorful fire. Our programs are real: from the experiments on genetics with drosophilae to chemical synthesis of esters. Our monitors are not animators, but students and alumni of the science faculties of leading universities of Barcelona.
  • 3
    Originality
    We never conduct "classic" experiments that have been shown to children in different science shows for years. Our developers are always thinking of something new to surprise you with. It's unlikely that you'll see what your children perform at our events anywhere else.
  • 4
    Variety
    Every month we present a brand new program. We make it in order for you not to get bored and visit us regularly. Thus, in a year or two your child will form a complete scientific picture of the world.
  • 5
    New technologies
    In our events we use the newest developments of modern pedagogy: quests and games, gadgets and multimedia.
  • 6
    Program for parents
    Children always look up to you. That is why we always make a separate program for the parents where you can learn new things and have fun at the same time.
AND ALSO

We just love science. We think that there are few things in the world that are as beautiful and exciting as science. This is what helps us create new programs and refine on our product.

We wouldn't recommend it. They simply wouldn't be interested.
Teams are formed instantly. Your child chooses a name tag of a certain colour and automatically enters the team of children who chose the same colour.
No, the program is free for parents. You don't need to buy tickets.
