Children’s workshops at the Science Festival

The children’s workshops are really cute and engaging. They explain science, deepening the topics covered at school, through play.

Here, too, the programme is rich.

How to book a workshop

On the Festival website, you can easily select the age group and venue, so you can quickly see the most suitable workshops based on your child’s age and topic of interest.

Once you have chosen the workshop, you can select the date and time, and see if they are free or paid for. In this case, you will need to purchase a one-day Festival ticket, or if more than one workshop is of interest, asubscription.

The advice is to book because, especially at weekends or in bad weather, places sell out quickly.

Useful information – Children under 10 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. Both must be in possession of a Festival entrance ticket.

If, for example, the child is under 5 years of age and therefore does not pay, it will be necessary to reserve a place for him/her with free admission and a place for the parent with paid admission.

Buying online is simple and intuitive, but in case of problems, you can call the call centre. The waiting times are quite long but don’t give up because, sooner or later, they answer and are very friendly.

The workshops last about 45 minutes.
