1. Christmas Decoration with a Spark

Ever notice how sometimes your hair is completely charfed with static electricity, or how you get a small "electric shock" when touching different objects. And especially in winter! Build a christmas decoration and put a real "spark" in it - let's find out what static electricity is all about!

Max. 30 people, ~30 minutes, ages 10 and over.

2. The Great Meltdown

Why do we throw salt and sand on the roads in winter? What's the fastest way for melting ice? Why do we need to de-frost the locks? How can something that's not warm still melt the ice? Come and find answers to all these questions, and many more!

10-25 people,  ~45 minutes

Minimum age 5 years, recommended age 7 years

7. Tangerine DNA

DNA is similar to a recipe that holds all the important information inside – color and shape of our hair and eyes, nose and even brain. All the living organisms have DNA and we are all rather alike with animals and plants. Who is closer to us, mosquito or banana? This workshop gives you a chance to extract DNA from a tangerine and see it with your eyes!
