Carnival at Explora gets colourful with two exciting workshops, for different age groups, and the can’t-miss face painting session, available for all children who want to enhance their costumes with lots of ideas from Explora.

The workshops will take place on February 23th, 25th, 26th and 28th:

  • Carnival changes colour, for children aged 3-5, is the workshop that lets children explore beauties and prodigies of Nature as well as learn about camouflage behaviours of some of the world’s most “disguised” animals. The first approach to biology is followed by a more creative corner dedicated to art, which allows children to play with colours, symbols of Carnival, and appreciate their different hues with new and innovative painting techniques combining art with… technology.
  • Ready for lift-off!, for children aged 6-11, is a Maker-style workshop, a contemporary movement characterised by the combination of multiple disciplines, such as engineering, DIY and technology in a huge melting pot of ideas and creations. It’s an opportunity to discover physics through the development of applied forces, release of energy, launch trajectories, in an ingenious combination of geometry and technology. The workshop also deals with reused materials, cardboard and rubberbands used together creatively, thus inviting children to experiment science by combining materials of daily use.
On Saturday and Sunday, you can take part in the workshop Cooking Lab – Jam-filled biscuits You’ll be preparing sweet desserts at the Explora’s kitchen: sensory stimuli derived from handling, tasting, dosing ingredients, all this to experience a moment of intense joy and sweetness. During the 50-minute workshop, little chefs will learn how to prepare food step by step in a playful and amusing way.

Come and join us for the most colourful Carnival ever!
