Science for kids

When I was a kid in elementary school, I was lucky enough to have an inflatable dome installed where movies were shown, and it was an enriching experience. But the most impressive thing for me was the visit to the Papalot Museum. Even though I was very young, I can remember exactly how excited I was upon discovering the museum for the first time.
Nowadays, I realize that I wish I had the opportunity to learn and be exposed to scientific topics from an early age. However, I never went to places like museums or cultural events in my city on a regular basis. I wonder what my life would have been like if I had been able to have early experiences with science, especially local science?
All of this interests me, and I’m not going to lie, in 2023, Caracol has been working hard to offer a variety of activities that include children and young people, bringing them closer to science and interactive activities.
Visiting a museum is an educational and different experience to what children and young people are used to, but having Caracol visit your school with a series of educational and interactive workshops is something we have never done before.
Throughout this year, the Educational Services team has introduced many initiatives to further promote science in our city, and we seek for all schools to have the experience of enjoying the activities we develop, therefore, for a few months we have been introducing an activity package for all students called “Caracol All-in-One”.
This package includes a visit to the Karakol Museum, where students can immerse themselves in exhibitions, workshops and a magnificent planetarium. In addition, we provide transportation to facilitate transportation of students to the museum and their school.
but this is not all. We also offer the Snail to Your School activity, which consists of three concurrent workshops in Astronomy, Biology, Marine Science and Engineering, designed so that all students can enjoy and learn in a fun and interactive way from their classrooms. This new educational package allows all students to learn and explore new areas that spark their curiosity.
As someone who places importance on education today, and is keenly aware of the wonder that science can awaken in all young people, I am excited by the idea that all students who reside in my city have the opportunity to have these experiences from a very young age.
I will continue to work with the entire Caracol team to bring our activities to all schools, just as our founder did in the beginning.
