Giving youngsters aged 10 to 14 a taste for science

XperiLAB.be, a learning vehicle equipped with a mini-laboratory, helps young people try out real scientific experiments and understand the role science plays in everyday life.


Aimed at children aged between 10 and 14 (end of primary school, beginning of secondary school) to raise awareness around the importance of learning science, XperiLAB.be will be travelling from village to village, from town to town and from school to school.


XperiLAB.be is an original way of learning science and understanding the key elements of our environment, helping to develop the best skills for facing up to the challenges of the future.


After all, these natural observers are the budding scientists of tomorrow!


This scientific method makes children play an active part in their learning.
Experiencing science helps children to:
• develop specific and transferable skills,
• learn new things.
