Photographs that show children enjoying the different experiments in the exhibition

Just for curious children

CosmoCaixa opens a new space that seeks to awaken in children between the ages of 3 and 11 the desire to experiment.

Light and colour, air and wind… there are many phenomena and physical realities that the most curious children discover while they experience the exciting adventure of knowledge. If you have or know children with curiosity, you should know that CosmoCaixa has just created a space specially designed to stimulate their desire to know new things. From 23 March, you are welcome to Clik.

This is the new space that CosmoCaixa has created, an educational environment that, in an experience as deep as it is fun, teaches them what it means to explore and experiment and puts them in contact with the most direct consequence of both: making discoveries.

You have to buy a ticket (6 €), in addition to the entrance to CosmoCaixa, to enjoy the experience, which does not have a maximum or minimum duration (it depends on the user) but which will take you through different spaces for about an hour and a half.

One of the Clik spaces, for example, invites children between the ages of 3 and 11 to wonder about the nature of the air, to experiment with the force and direction of the wind. Something as simple as a paper airplane will allow the young visitors to learn many things and to see the differences in the flight that occur if they change the shape of the toy. Nearby, there is a large air tray that allows elements of different shapes, sizes and weights to fly.

Light and colour is another aspect of the physical world that children can explore, studying the phenomena of refraction and reflection or checking (or perhaps discovering) how colours are created. Tiles of light and elements of different shapes and colours will help the little scientists in their research.

A space dedicated to water, where the children will learn concepts such as surface tension, or a section dedicated to the construction of structures and bridges are other aspects of a space that not only aims to provide children with an experience of an afternoon or a morning, but to imbue their brains with the concepts of experimentation and learning, so that they continue to apply them when they leave the museum.

If you know a child between 3 and 11 years old who is very curious, do them a favour and take them to the new CosmoCaixa Clik. Maybe you will contribute to the success of a future scientific career.
