The V. Edition of the “Cienceando” campsite event, promoted by the Science Museum of the University of Navarre, brings together 380 boys and girls aged between 3 and 12 from all over Navarre this summer.
Giant soap bubbles, a self-made compass, writing a secret message with magic ink, making objects disappear, or changing their color are some of the experiments that the schoolchildren performed in the camps about chemistry in June and July.
On the other hand, the camps are about nature Held outdoors throughout August, children learn about biodiversity in cities, how habitats work, and why there is a need to protect them. So days were spent learning about different species of urban fauna, such as bats, beavers, mollusks, moles, earthworms, birds, and crabs, and exploring through games, crafts, and explanations of their biology, diet, habitat, etc. In this issue of Cienceando, the participants also discovered the importance of insect pollination and the environment they need to survive.
Aimed at toddlers and primary school children, the University of Navarra Science Museum Urban Camps are designed as a fun way to spend the summer learning and enjoying science. Your tutorial was designed by the Chemistry teacher and the Science Museum team and is taught by undergraduate students in Natural Sciences, Pedagogy, and Psychology from the University of Navarra.
