The day starts at 8u30. Parents and children will register before continuing on. During registration the kids will receive their T-shirts and the parents will get a schedule. Afterwards we can start exploring.

Your kids do NOT need to have any prior knowledge and can just come and discover the world of science, technology, engineering, math and IT. 

We have several activity stations where the kids learn by doing an activity and we have a couple of workshops. Once again we have tried to tie together the different stations by a storyline. The kids can try the activity stations in the order they appear in the story or they can switch it up and do as they please.

All activities will be held in Dutch, French and English.
