Free ‘Science Clubs’ for Tweens on Holidays

As in previous years, the authorities of the Science Cultural Center (C3) of Buenos Aires presented a series of free activities, aimed at boys and girls from 8 to 12 years old, who seek to awaken and encourage scientific curiosity.

“For January we launched what we call ‘science clubs’, with renewed themes,” he told PROFILE Florence Badaracco, coordinator of cultural programming of C3. According to Badaracco, “these are playful workshops to make the afternoon fun and creative.”

These new workshops, which are held in C3, which is located on the premises of the Ministry de Ciencia de Nación, are scheduled to begin offering from the second week of January. And each one will invite the kids to delve into various universes that unite science, technology and art. Thus, it will be possible to make a workshop of electric lutheria made with piezoelectric materials and recyclable elements. you can also learn rudiments of 3D printing with biodegradable elements. There will also be a workshop that will teach the basics of video mapping about everyday objects. And, finally, music fans will be able to experience the use of synthesizers, samplers, sequencers, midis and loops to get started in music. electronic music.

Parachute to ease attendance, each workshop will consist of three meetings that will take place during January, but their “classes” – lasting one hour each – are independent from each other so that anyone can do the activity independently. These workshops will take place on Thursdays and Fridays in January and do not require the children to bring any items.

In addition, from January 14, the C3 opens the “reading point” to enjoy stories with science by writers, who will invite the youngest to join in reading and writing poetry inspired by the collection of stories and books from the Lee Ciencia, Lee Futuro program. These activities will take place on Saturdays and Sundays at 5:00 p.m. And all this is combined with the permanent C3 museum and its traditional laboratories.

Badaracco suggested that those interested I note scam anticipation by the C3 website ( before attending, although some places are usually saved to supply the spontaneous demand.
