Science is Wonderful!

Brussels, 25 and 26 April 2024

Think Big, Be Great!

If you're persistent, nothing can stop you from becoming a big thinker, no matter who you are or where you're from.

    School subject:

    The Puppet show and workshop, Think Big, Be Great! explains how important it is for children to follow their dreams and to not be hemmed in by preconceived notions like the ones that stop girls from becoming scientists.

    The video clips pass on the message that there are female role models in science, who have overcome a number of obstacles to fulfill their dreams. Just like them, all kids should persevere.

    Experiments and Explanations

    Martina, Bob, and the rest of the gang learn about famous women throughout the history of science, as well as do some fun experiments, some that you can do at home!
