I Love Science (15-16-17.10.2021)
I Love Science Festival is an awesome place for kids. There are TONS of experiments and STEAM activities! From 3D printers to Virtual Reality, from dinosaurs to ghostbusters, you’re bound to find something you will love!
There are many Virtual Reality options and we are proud to say we tried them all 🙂
There are also 3D printers and a pretty cool way for kids to understand the 3D printing technique: they get to build a minion with a 3D printing technique!
The biggest winner was Ghostbusters with experiments that propel a balloon to kill a ghost and with slime made from ghosts
Coding and robots were everywhere, as expected. There was even a poster on the wall ‘Keep calm and build robots’
Also Legos were present, although not as much as our kid would have loved to
There were also some good old experiments and microscopes
There was also an Elecrtricity Fairy!
Kids can also look for dinosaur fossils at the Jurassic Adventures
And then there is gaming (you can also lend your face to Mr Pacman!)
In some of the VR options, a third person can see what you see on a monitor
In other VRs you can choose to see Anglerfish (too scary according to our 5-year-old), turtles (just ok) or whales (too big)
There is also laser tag
You can fly a drone through loops (but only for 10+ years old to our disappointment). There are also tons of other activities that we didn’t have time to get to, although we spent the whole day there!
And then, as if all of the above are not enough, there is also a physics playground!
This is more suited to preschoolers, maybe 5+ years old. There are not many things that are targeted towards younger kids. We had our 2-year-old with us and the thing they found most interesting was the small playground! A science museum would be more suited to younger kids, as there are sections that are specifically designed for them. And of course a science museum is a great option for when the I Love Science festival is over 🙂
Technopolis is an interactive and fun science center for kids with cool shows and demonstrations. This is easily one of the best indoor activities for kids!
