EXPLORUM delivers fun, entertaining, and educational extracurricular science, DIY arts and cooking programs to children who speak or are learning French. Programs consist of hands-on activities that children carry out themselves. Experiment may include making slime, building cars, studying the properties of magnets, simulating lungs, constructing a catapult and much more. DIY Arts could include making decorative mobiles, useful, yet beautiful items, toys and more. In the culinary workshops, kids will be introduced to international cuisine, as they make easy dishes such as waffles, humus, quiches or sorbets.
