Had you already noticed? There have been BIG works happening in our exhibition room. A barrier here, a “closed” sign there... We understand that you would rather not have this during your visit but we are hoping you can be patient for a little bit longer. To convince you that our exhibition room really will be (even) better, we wanted to show you some of our future plans. We think it’s going to be great! Do you agree?
We are building...
a brand new zone for young people over the age of 14 on the ground floor. In the zone the "makers" will get to know new technology and get the opportunity to innovate and learn how these technologies can be used as a solution to certain challenges.
A special Youth Council, established by Technopolis employee, Deepak Mehta from 'Team Scheire', are also thinking about how this new zone can be used. In January we are lifting the veil. Just a little bit more of a wait, but the wait will be worth it!
And if you thought that was it...
... You’d be wrong!
- This year we are celebrating the Inter[Na]tional Ye[Ar] of c[He]mistry. So, brace yourself for a mix of blasts, explosive experiments and even more particularly interesting matter than ever before! One of our highlights will be a brand-new interactive exhibit that completely resolves around Mendeleev's periodic table. This exhibit will be revealed on 6 March 2019, exactly 150 years after Mendeleev first published his table.
- There will also be a new ‘Pure’ zone that focuses on some basic mechanisms from physics.
This is all that we have to look forward to but unfortunately in the meantime we will need to move or get rid of quite a few set-ups. We are doing all that we can so that you can experience as much as possible.Technopolis is open daily from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Help us build our future!
At our TeST! Living_Lab, our temporary pop-up zone, you can try out educational prototypes of new interactive set-ups. Please feel free give your opinion to our staff members and let them know how you would make the exhibits (even) better. That way, you can help use build our future!
"We are developing somewhere for the children to experience the future..."
"We are in the middle of making some big changes, we are developing somewhere for the children to experience the future, discover their talents and (more than ever before) be fascinated by science and technology.
Over the past two years we have been working hard to develop this and we have created a plan across all fields (companies/education/government) in order to turn this goal into a reality." Stephane Berghmans, CEO of Technopolis
