Science Market team consists mostly of researchers, teachers and creative people who are passionate about science communication.
We strongly believe that the key engine for a society is EDUCATION! We aim to make learning approachable, active and fun. We know that when kids see, hear or learn a piece of information, they will forget it within a few weeks, but if they do experiments and understand the concept of it, they will have it imprinted in their minds for life. So we need more hands on activities for kids!
Indeed, kids have a chance to do some science experiments in schools (very seldom and depending on teachers’ motivation) or during science festivals (typically organized once per year). This is not good enough if we want to teach them properly and produce a long-lasting knowledge.
We decided to start communicating science 24/7. We can’t influence the school curriculum but we can help parents (and all interested people) to organize a high quality spare time for their kids.
