Activities for schools

Every year hundreds of primary and secondary school children participate in the Science Week activities that we organize at the Science Museum of the University of Navarra. Through experiments The students learn about biology, physics, chemistry and microbiology, as well as informative talks given by our teachers and researchers, and reinforce, in an attractive and entertaining way, some of the scientific concepts they are studying in their schools.
