STEAM workshops under theme of biology

Theme: Biology

What does biology encompass? This extensive discipline includes the study of all living things, animals, plants, the underwater world... Through practical experiments, creative manipulations, and playful activities, children will immerse themselves in the study of various living beings, helping them understand the complexity of nature and envision the crucial role of some species in the delicate balance of our ecosystem. These workshops aim to cultivate a love for nature, stimulate scientific curiosity, and promote a deep appreciation for all living things around us.

In my body (series) - Gr. 1 +

In my body... a series of exciting workshops dedicated to exploring the human body, specially designed to awaken curiosity and understanding in the fascinating universe of anatomy, bodily systems, and internal functioning of the organism. During these interactive workshops, children will have the unique opportunity to explore the mysteries of human biology; from the skeleton to the teeth, and the functioning of organs, children will discover how all these systems work together to keep us healthy.

Plant needs (long term commitment) - Gr. 1 +
