An exhibition around fire control. It's fun, educational and necessary!
Fire is capital in the history of humanity. Sometimes a friend who warms, enlightens and unites us around the hearth, sometimes an enemy who evokes ravage, destruction and violence. The Cité des Sciences presents a exciting, extremely clear, lively, interactive and educational exhibition. This exhibition traces the history of the domestication of fire and ends with experiments that explain how to protect oneself in case of fire. A necessary exhibition for children as well as for adults, which will surely give rise to firefighter vocations!
The Fire exhibition is divided into three parts: taming, understanding and fighting the fire
Fire is organized around 3 main themes: Taming the fire (more historical dimension with its myths, and its domestication in time), Understanding the phenomenon of fire (analysis of chemical phenomena and industrialization) and Fight the fire (prevention, protection, fight against fires). For each of these 3 themes, the scenography of the City of Science sets up very fun and educational experiences and presents videos. The scenarios are adapted to small as to teenagers.. Depending on the age of each, we focus on one part of the exhibition rather than another.
