Insects and other invertebrates are guests of new installations observed in environments reminiscent of their habitats. It will be possible to learn about the extraordinary properties of small players whose existence is favored or endangered due to human activities: Cockroaches, Mantids, Stick Insects, Ants, Centipedes and Hermit crabs will show all visitors their characteristics, strengths and weaknesses. And for insectophobes and arachnophobes…now is the right time to challenge their fears!

7 STEPS IN SUSTAINABILITY 

Dec. 12
Edited by: STRESS, Technology District for Sustainable Construction, in collaboration with ETT and Idis Foundation – City of Science
Target audience: 8 – 13 years old
How to design and construct a sustainable building? A path with interactive exhibits helps in discovery and knowledge. An experimental activity that helps to understand the central role that “sustainable buildings” hold in achieving the goals of the Green Deal. The Exhibition/Game is named “7 Steps in Sustainability,” because it is a seven-step discovery path of play, punctuated by the encounter with interactive exhibits that simulate the construction site of an eco-sustainable home in which children are asked to build their own model of a sustainable and smart home as real designers of the future.

COVID

SARS-COV-2: THE VIRUS
THAT CHANGED OUR LIVES

from December 14
Where: CORPOREA – Interactive Museum of the Human Body
Target audience: for everyone
This is a new “thematic island” of the CORPOREA interactive museum of the human body, created thanks to the contribution of the Campania Region. The exhibition, which has seen a prestigious scientific committee at work, is the first interactive exhibition on Covid created in Italy. It tells, through objects, images, videos, multimedia installations and experiments, the story of the pandemic, with particular reference to events in Campania and the role of doctors and researchers in our region in the fight against the virus. From this exhibition core, the staff of Science City will continue, as it has been doing since the beginning of the pandemic, to inform its public about the vaccination campaign and the behaviors needed to prevent the spread of the virus.

Città della Scienza’s Science Centre is an important tool for education and dissemination of scientific culture through exhibitions, meetings with scientists, campaigns and activities to promote science and technology, projects connecting science and society at national, European and international dimension .

Science Centre’s exhibition area is made up by:

  • Corporea, Human Body Museum

  • Planetarium

Science Centre offers the following laboratories:

  • GNAM, the Village of Mediterranean Diet and Biodiversity

  • Classrooms, Children FabLab, Reporteen School

By 2020 the new Science Centre of Città della Scienza – 10.000 sqm displaying interactive exhibits, exhibitions, scientific labs – will be the biggest scientific and interactive museum of Italy and one of most important in Europe, having a leading role in the international context.
