Experimenting has never been so 'cool' at Technopolis

Feeling hot, hot, hot in the summer sun? Not at Technopolis. Because we have plenty of summer-proof activities in the Lab and the Workshop in store for you. Or why not escape the heat and refresh yourself in the water installations or get active in our sunny Science Garden? Experimenting has never been so cool.


Make summerproof gadgets

Do you want to keep your head cool when the mercury rises rocket-high? Come and hide from the sun in our high-tech Lab and Atelier. Get ready for summer and make your own cool gadget to enjoy a summer-proof holiday. How about some personalised sunglasses (without UV protection) or a name tag for your suitcase? In our Lab you can test how (well) sunscreen works! Bet you your summer holiday will be a walk in the park!


Splish splash!

Are you looking for some refreshment and fun in the water? Splash away! Hurry to our Water side and experiment with water... or just splash water all over each other. And that's not all. Why not try and balance some balls on a water jet or - and yes, it does sound amazing but it's absolutely true - crawl inside a soap bubble!  Or be a god of the seas and make your own waves.

phone Closed due to maintenance on 1, 2 and 3 August!

Keep it cool in our exhibition area

Not only the water experiments are deliciously cool. Actually, the entire exhibition space is quite nice and fresh. Which is not to say you won't break a sweat. Unless you're capable of landing an aeroplane without clammy hands, of course. Would you get unto a bed of nails or cycle five metres high without trembling legs - surrounded by the birds of prey of the Grand Canyon in virtual reality? Did you ever bring slippery worms back to live or dissect wild animals on a 3D dissection table? Not to mention the spectacular science shows with impressive and surprising experiments that are guaranteed to blow you away! 


Head outside!

And when it's cooling down, you head outside to fill your lungs with science. Off to the Science Garden! Set a rock weighing 5 tonnes in motion with your pinky, walk over a living bridge, follow the tracks of the most dangerous animal in the world, and whisper perfectly understandable sentences to each other... while you're standing 15 metres apart.

Target group: young and old
