Are girls really better at multitasking than boys? And are boys the best at technical things? Find out together and discover how different (or similar) your talents are in an interactive way!

At Technopolis, we will do away with the old, set gender cliché once and for all. the gender EXPERIMENT answers the questions that lead to discussion: are girls really better at multitasking than boys? Do boys have a better sense of direction? Are boys better at putting out fires and girls at taking care of people? Visit this exhibit and discover the differences and similarities between the talents boys and girls have. Want to bet you’ll quickly be ready to let go of all your prejudices?

the gender EXPERIMENT consists of at least 25 exciting interactive exhibits. You can test your hearing and your sense of smell, show your skills as an electrician, put together gears until you have a perfectly working machine... More than enough for an entire day!

You will prove what your gender is good at while experimenting and discovering! When you enter, you will receive a special electronic bracelet that automatically records all your scores. At the end, we will add the points of all the boys and all the girls. We’re curious to see what we can deduct from that!

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!
