Sometimes a friend who warms, enlightens and brings us together around the fireplace, sometimes an enemy who evokes devastation, destruction and violence. The Cité des Sciences presents a A fascinating, 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 yourself in case of fire. A necessary exhibition for young and old alike, which will surely inspire firefighting vocations!
Fire is structured 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, fire fighting). For each of these 3 themes, The scenography of the Cité des Sciences sets up very playful and educational experiments and presents videos. The scenarios are adapted to children and teenagers.. Depending on the age of the visitor, one part of the exhibition will be viewed more than another.
