Summer Science Factory

5.8. - 19.8. 2007 / August 5 – August 19 2007

Abstract:

This project aims at children eager to spend summer time in a creative play and interaction with other children and young scientists. They will be given an opportunity to discover nature and science through games and experiments in a nurturing atmosphere where every question is worth answering and every idea is turned into a project. Activities will include hands-on experiments, field trips, computer simulations, science of magic, group projects, and lots of imaginative and team-building games and sports.

Prerequisites:

Children ages 8 to 16, with a basic understanding of spoken English. Both international children and Croatian children will participate.
