Other weekend activities

Among other scheduled activities, visitors to the museum will be able to experience space in the new Base Marte laboratory, which recreates the Martian base as an innovative STEM experience scenario through unprecedented live role-playing. Designed specifically for children aged 10 to 14, Base Marte is an immersive environment in which you put yourself in the shoes of a crew of astronauts on a mission to the red planet to ensure the survival of the base. The proposals of i.lab Biotechnology continue, where plants, animals and micro-organisms can be observed under the microscope to discover their properties and the products of daily life to be found, and those of the Tinkering District, where visitors 8-year-olds can create DIY pinball machines. For more adults, the YOU&AI Digital Zone, a digital environment to enhance AI-themed dialogue and audience engagement, will be open.
