Science for children and youngsters

Below you'll find some of our initiatives for children and youngsters. Most websites we refer to are in Dutch, but please do not hesitate to contact us if you'd like more information.


Science Day

Looking for an instructive, fascinating and enjoyable day full of science? At the end of November, numerous Flemish universities, university colleges and research institutes open their doors! 

Ghent University's Observatory Armand Pien

Do you really like astronomy and meteorology? In the observatory you can watch the stars, attend lectures and visit exhibitions. When there is a solar or lunar eclipse, special monitoring events are organized.

Gents University Museum & Botanical Garden

Visit this museum dedicated to science, research and critical thinking, where you can discover that scholarship is the result of trial and error, doubt and imagination.

Science competitions


Are you a math genius, or crazy about technology? At these Olympiads you'll meet peers with similar interests ... and you can venture together. Is your school not participating yet? Talk to your teacher!
