Museum Tour

Lets Science_Opengraph_EN_IT


In German-speaking Switzerland, a new Let's Science! initiative is underway.
IBSA Foundation for scientific research proudly presents the innovative Scientific Museum Tour project, granting secondary school classes the opportunity to take part in museum workshops for free. The students can explore science in a different way and profit on multiple levels from the experience.

Contact us to participate!


Who is the initiative aimed at?

The program is aimed at 10 classes from German speaking Switzerland, specifically it is intended for first, second and third classes of secondary schooI or the age group of 13 to 15.

muscoletto_letsscienceWhat to expect from the Scientific Museum Tour?

The project involves six different museums and eleven workshops to choose from, where students can explore topics discussed during class hours or on study books, in line with Curriculum 21. 
After the workshop, the students can record what they have learned in drawings. IBSA Foundation will offer «Let's Science!» books and a set of drawing materials (paper pad, pens, templates).

This does not only aim at illustrating what was learned but helping to memorize.
In this way, a subject can be explored from all angles.
Practically in the museum tour, theoretically on the books, and in the comic course as a personal visualization.

An opportunity to learn whilst having fun

Museums offer a lot of engaging activities. There are adventure tours and workshops to discover. Especially at scientific museums many exhibits are interactive. 
With the combination of seeing, hearing and exploring with their hands, students memorize scientific knowledge in a playful way and therefore with a much easier approach. With this initiative, IBSA Foundation for scientific research wishes to raise interest in the topics, in science in general and in exploring new forms of learning.
