Dear Friends,
Get ready to start a series of visits to science museums with GiF’s Little Mad Scientist meetings, where the aim is to expose children to all things science throughout the year. Our first visit will be to Palais de la Decouverte on Sunday April 3 at 10h30. We will meet in the lobby in time to buy entrance tickets (7 euros for adults, free for under 6's, 4.50 for ages 6-25).  Children and parents will chose a couple of topics to focus on based on how well you know the place.  We will pause for lunch around 12h00 (you can bring your own sandwiches and just buy drinks there in their small snack area, which also sells sandwiches, cookies and drinks.) After lunch, we can chose the second or third activity depending on the group’s interest.  After that and depending on the weather, we can get our sillies out by going to a nearby park.   

In addition to instilling and encouraging interest in science and technology, another important project goal is for children and parents to meet like-minded peers.

We look forward to developing and growing the Little Mad Scientist Club. We welcome parents leading talks, doing show and tell, and sharing their expertise with children. (Please note that if you have a membership to the Cites des Sciences, it should also work at this museum, so bring it along. There's also a coat and stroller check-in and there should be plenty of room on a Sunday morning.)
