EXPERI-BUDDIES
Experi-buddies is an educational program that make use of experiments to show toddlers that the world of Science can be lots of fun. This is done by interactive activities, easy demonstrations and experiments. Each week we introduce a “Scientist of the week” for example: Einstein, Edison, Fahrenheit etc. We aim to introduce science to the youngster at a very young age in order to teach them the important roles that these giants played in the past to make our lives today, much easier.
