Elettrica-mente! 8 and 9 September 2018 at Città della Scienza

An electrifying weekend to start again … 

When summer is ending, the risk is longing and always around the corner. What is needed is a discharge of energy to start again at the top and face a new school and work year.

Precisely for this reason, come and visit us at Città della Scienza on the weekend of reopening of September 8th -9th, 2018 where you will find many interactive laboratories, insights, scientific demonstrations on Electricity! From the aspects related to the activity of global electrical phenomena, an exciting weekend awaits you!

With “Makey Makey” you can transform, thanks to a nice kit, any object in a computer keyboard … And if bananas become keys of a piano? Come and try this amazing laboratory that exploits the ability to conduct electricity through plant tissues!

Have you ever tried to build a “scribbling machine”? Connect the cables and build in this innovative tinkering lab (from English to tinker) a machine able to scribble and then, wide to the imagination in the decoration phase!
Just talking about electricity, circuits, Ohm’s and Faraday’s laws, you get goosebumps and immediately you get entangled with phrases “Too difficult for me!” Or “I do not care”? Follow “Experimenting with … Electricity!”: We will try to make you change your mind and we will demonstrate, through simple and reproducible experiments, that even the physics of electricity is within everyone’s reach! Maybe you can discover to be  a modern Tesla!
If you visit our Corporea museum, 5000 square meters museum, on three levels, entirely dedicated to the human body, you have always wondered what it was that strange caged ball near the exit or that you already know that with that exhibit you can have fun, the Hair straightener is ready to be experienced! With great demand, there is this weekend “Il Ritorno del Drizzacapelli”!
Spend a warm and sunny September day full of curiosity and fun! Do not leave without first having a look at our exhibition areas!
You still have not visited the Corporea museum? It is the only one in Italy, entirely dedicated to the “perfect” machine of the human body! A guided tour, in the company of one of our guides, will allow you to discover the secrets of our body and experience the exhibits that most intrigue you!
What is adrenaline, what is it and what happens to our body when an adrenaline rush is taking place? Do not miss “Adrenaline releases”!
Discover which new fish, molluscs and crustaceans live in the pools of the “Sea” exhibition following the guided tour “Marine ecosystems”. During the visit, you will have the opportunity to caress some live marine organisms in our Touch pool. What an emotion!

There are electric discharges that fascinate us more than others … These are lightning (also called lightning or lightning), atmospheric phenomena between clouds and ground of great power and energy, as well as a strong suggestion! Just consider that once they were considered as a direct evocation of the rage of the Gods! “Lightning … in the sky”have fallen!

A guided tour of “Insetti & CO”, the new exhibition space dedicated to the spectacular world of insects and more. For every man on Earth there are over 150 million insects. “The six-legged giants” have conquered almost all the habitats of our planet … it’s time to start getting to know them better. For youngest future scientists, an “AniMani” finger painting workshop – where, inspired by a happy fairy tale, you can paint all the animals you love most, but, using only your fingerprints. And if your children still want to learn, “Create your marine animals”, a laboratory where you can color fish shapes, inventing new species, and then, as for “magic”, make them appear and swim in a large virtual aquarium .

Have you ever met BIT the most loved exhibits by adults and children?  Come and meet him, he will answer all your scientific curiosities and not only … Where have you been in this time? What adventures will he tell you? Do not miss this appointment with “Talk to BIT”. At the Planetarium you can choose between the 2D show “From Earth to the Universe – From the Earth to the Universe” to discover the most important theories elaborated by man over time in the astronomical field up to future prospects and, if you can not give up the thrill 3D, “Robot Explorers” to travel with probes, landers and orbiters in our solar system.

Come and discover the rich program!

We are waiting for you in many!
