Our activities

A bat's life

This activity illustrates in a funny, involving and complete way the mysterious world of chiroptera, commonly known as bats. Discover their environment, their life cycle, their importance for the ecosystem. And create with simple materials a bat, which can be customized by each kid! Activity for first classes of primary schools.

The underground world and its animals

Hidden in the stone cracks, suspended to thin intricate webs, many animal species live underground. Darkness, temperature, humidity, isolation, lack of food sources took these beings to an adaptation to the surrounding environment. This caused a radical transformation of their appearance. Kids will understand how these species survived in such an extreme environment, and why it's so important to preserve it. Instruments used for this activity: thermometer, hygrometer. Activity for last classes of primary schools.

Discovering environments: karst and caves

The caves are like ancient, untouched natural treasures, which can be opened to the kids: following the path of underground waters through calcareous stones, they will discover the karst phenomenon, the process which originated them. By means of images and the construction of small objects, kids will easily understand how water can create a wide array of mineral formations through a never ending dissolution and deposit process inside the cavity.
