Overview

The biggest hit was catching a thief!
We had to follow clues and apply logic to find who did it.

The detective that helped us solve the mystery was top notch!

Coding and robots are everywhere, as expected.

There were also some good old experiments and microscopes

One of the most fun parts was to find Pokemon pieces in the slime in order to create Pikachu

In a VR exrerience my son saw a puffer fish. This was much better compared to the anglerfish he saw last year and scared him! I tried it also this year and the galaxy experience is stunning

There are some hands on workshops. In one you can create a moving electric “bird”. You get to play with circuits and decorate it as well

That’s the result!

You can create an object and test if it flies – that was lots of fun!

We loved the talk of Dirk Frimout, the first Belgian astronaut to go into space. Kids were asking things like “what do astronauts eat in space”

Here is the post from 2021, in case you want to see what it looked like!

I Love Science 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!

For whom is this event?

This event is more suited to school age kids, 6+ years old. There are not many things that are targeted towards younger kids. We had our 3-year-old with us and although they were interested in what was happening, I would not recommend this for toddlers!

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 🙂

Science and Technology Museums

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!
