The Museum of Science and Technology of Catalonia (MNACTEC) is offering a new programme of activities intended for families this autumn. The initiative aims to bring children from an early age into contact with scientific and technological heritage, through workshops and activities linked to the exhibits and projects at the MNACTEC.
The activities have been divided into four separate blocks in accordance with the theme covered and the intended audience: "Technology Workshops", "Dramatised Tours of the Textile Factory", "The MNACTEC for the Youngest Visitors" and "Family Science".
On the first Sunday in the month, coinciding with the Museum's free entrance day, there will be the traditional "Dramatised tour: 1910. A Stroll around the Factory", offering a fun way to explore the exhibition "The Textile Factory", one of the most important at the MNACTEC. This spring's programme likewise includes activities for the youngest visitors, with workshops such as "Playing with our bodies" and "The colours of light", conceptualised for children aged between 3 and 6 years old, and including dramatised and participatory aspects.
Children aged over 6 will also have the chance to explore the world of technology, with workshops where they can light up a baseball cap with LEDs, or design a robot with electrically conductive paint.The programme also introduces visitors to the scientific method, chemistry and experimental physics, with experiments at the Mentora Alsina laboratory exhibition space, among other activities. Lastly, within the context of the Modernist Fair and Museum Night and Day, the MNACTEC is organising special activities that will be announced shortly.
The "Family Sundays at the MNACTEC" will be staged from 5 April to 28 June at 12 noon, and will cost 1 euro per participant (not including the Museum entrance fee). For further information and bookings, check here.27 March 2015
