What is Science Club?

It’s a journey into the world of science with scientists from Cracow’s best universities
as guides. It’s physics, chemistry and biology at child’s fingertips. Our classes are
conducted with methods based on experiments and drawing conclusions independently,
so that gaining knowledge is fun. We guarantee an innovative form of learning natural
sciences with children at the centre of events.

 

What do you get?

Innovative in terms of methodology natural sciences workshops per semester in
