Children’s activities at the National Museum of Natural Sciences of the CSIC
Last Thursday, July 8, researchers from the Food Science Research Institute (CIAL)-CSIC organized a new session of scientific dissemination through a portfolio of children’s activities at the National Museum of Natural Sciences of the CSIC.
In this activity entitled Energy for a better world: contributing from our nutrition 75 children were able to learn how our food has a great impact on the future of the world. They were able to learn about the importance of eating habits and lifestyle, and especially, enjoy how science can contribute to educate from the earliest ages to make informed and environmentally friendly nutritional choices. All this within the framework of interactive activities and creative workshops such as the following:
Does food have DNA: With this fun workshop, children learned about DNA and how it can be extracted from food.
2. Is your food sustainable?: Playing a game of dots, they were able to discover sustainability in food.
3. The importance of water: they learned about the water cycle and how, depending on its origin, it will have different amounts of minerals.
4. Food that changes color: Did you know that food can change color? Join us in this demonstration!
