The activities will be taught in the science room and will include practice combined with theory. In doing so, scientific experiments and investigative workshops will be conducted. In all, the course will last more than 90 hours and only 20 places are offered, 10 of which are in the morning and the rest in the afternoon.

The aim of the course is to complete science learning for students who were at risk in the last year due to the covid-19 pandemic and face-to-face classroom disruptions. In addition, the classes will encourage children to realize the presence of science in their daily lives.

In order to preserve the health of the participating students, the limit of places and the separation was determined in two periods. In addition, in the living room, everyone wears a mask, alcohol gel, goggles and gloves, plus social distancing.
