There is so much to explore at Technopolis, you need more than one day! On this page you can find everything you can discover during the summer vacation. We are also open on the 21st of July (Belgian National Day) and the 15th of August (Mother's Day)! Getting tired of the sun or are you in desparate need to cool yourself down?

Premiere 'Big Hero 6: The Series' (Dutch)
We have BIG news for you! On Wednesday 22 August you get to be the first to watch the first two episodes of 'Big Hero 6: The Series' (spoken in Dutch, without subtitles).
Instead of the usual workshops in the Lab, Atelier and Makerij we offer a series of fun robot workshops: Bee-Bot, Ozobot, Borstelrobot and Artificial intelligence with TJ Bots. All our workshops are offered in Dutch, but we do our best to assist you in English. Because the premiere of ‘Big Hero 6: The Series’ takes place in our auditorium, there will be no shows on 22 August, but our exhibtions remain opened!
All activities, including the premiere are included in the price of your ticket.Wednesday 22 August 2018
Exhibitions (NL / FR / ENG)
All exhibitions are available every day of the week, from 9:30 a.m. till 5 p.m.
Have you noticed?
We're doing MAJOR works in our exhibition space! At the end of last year, we already introduced a set of new exhibits about digital nature exploration at Xplora, followed by the temporary themed exhibition Play the Light. However, that was just the tip of the iceberg. In June, we have opened Sports 2.0, a brand new exhibition about sports. And next year, we will introduce a whole new active concept for people over 14 years old.
So, the future looks bright, but that also means we will have to move or remove some line-ups in the coming months. We will do our utmost to limit inconveniences.
Don't forget your RFID bracelet!
Did you know that a lot of our exhibits are equipped with RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology? Pick a bracelet when you enter Technopolis, hold it against the scanner of the exhibit you want to try out, enter your data just once and you will receive the results of your experiments in your mail box!
Workshops in the Lab (NL)
Conduct scientific experiments in our high-tech Lab (8 years and older)!
The workshops in our Lab are normally done in Dutch, but there are also manuals present in French and English. Our attendants will do their best to help you out in French or English. How well we can help you depends on the language skills of the attendant in question, the complexity of the workshop and the number of participants.
Because of the premiere of 'Big Hero 6: The Series' on Wednesday 22 August instead of the usual workshops we offer the robot workshops Bee-Bot and Ozobot.
Workshops in the Atelier (NL)
In our Atelier (8 years and older) you can set your imagination free! Isn't that refreshing?!
During the summer vacation we do not offer separate workshops. Instead we propose to you a series of challenges. It is up to you to invent and create out of the box solutions using the equipment in our Atelier!
Our workshops in the Makerspace are normally done in Dutch. Our attendants will do their best to help you out in French or English, but also keep in mind that our software is often only available in Dutch (but often also in English). How well we can help you depends on the language skills of the attendant in question, the complexity of the workshop and the number of participants.
Because of the premiere of 'Big Hero 6: The Series', on 22 August the summer challenge is replaced by the new workshop Artificial intelligence with TJ Bots.
Our edutainers will blow your mind and will leave you baffled with their impressive and surprising scientific experiments.
Because the premiere of 'Big Hero 6: The Series' takes place in our auditorium, there will be no shows on Wednesday 22 August.
Sometimes you just have to see something to believe it! We demonstrate some fun science principles that will literally make your hair stand on end!
