Each session of these workshops has the following phases:

  • Introduction: Science and/or technology concepts are explained in a simple way.
  • Guided lab:  the facilitator guides the kids in order to apply the concepts in phase 1.
  • μ-Sci-Fi Stories: The kids imagine how could it be applied in the future in their every day’s life, drawing or writing a short story.
  • Makers: The kids build a prototype using recycled and low-cost materials, which can be customized (functionality, colours, innovation, etc) accordingly to the μ-Sci-Fi Stories.
  • Final Presentation: The kids make a short presentation, explaining the main characteristics of their prototypes.
