Exhibition really very playful and interactive. A great success.
Here is an exhibition where you can have fun and learn a lot! Discover the physics, chemistry, mathematics, geology, biology that are hidden in the literature of tales like The Three Little Pigs, The Adventures of Pinocchio, Little Red Riding Hood or Alice in Wonderland! Based on ten classics of children's literature, the exhibition explores the science present in each story through thirty fun and interactive experiments.
An exhibition where science is explained in a very original and educational way, around 10 fables:
So with PinocchioChildren will learn to doubt. You should not believe everything you see or hear. With The 3 little pigsIn this case, the construction techniques and the resistance of the materials are studied. Little Red Riding Hood explains that colors can influence emotions and it is an opportunity to look at the biology of wolves (sight, hearing, food, smell). With Ali Baba and the 40 thievesIn this case, it is the world of mathematics that is at stake, and in particular the question of whether a 3-digit code is more secure than a 2-digit code? With the tale of CinderellaThe reflection turns around the notions of surface and volume. Hansel and Gretel naturally addresses the world of cooking and biology around chocolate. The Princess and the Pea addresses tactile sensitivity and the world of mites, fleas and bedbugs. Alice in Wonderland is focused on the problems of optical illusions. Snow White and the 7 Dwarfs questions the emotions behind facial expressions, the nuances of skin color, and wonders why we sneeze or why yawning is contagious. Based on the story of Jack and the magic bean the children are made aware of ecology and biodiversity. The problems of our daily water consumption to feed ourselves are addressed, as well as biodiversity with an impressive collection of beans: 40 varieties of 5 different species.
