Last weekend I was a volunteer of a very nice event organized for children in Bucharest: Sci-kids science festival the 5th edition.
The main idea of the festival is to encourage children to discover new things and develop themselves through science.
It’s like a game with a lot of people playing and having fun, but learning in the same time how to raise questions about the universe.
What were the activities during this festival?
Well, there were so many: VR experience, educational workshops, robot’s competition, Q&A on science, smart toys creation, technical Lego constructions, scientific experiments and music programs.
I met a lot of kids doing some interesting stuff with their life and knowing so many things at an early age. I’ve also learned new things about science and I met super nice people.
The children are so smart and their behavior was so natural and unselfconscious when speaking in public. That makes me realize how the world is continuously changing and the children are definitely different then we were.
Like my mom uses to say: when I was young, the world wasn’t like that- I say it now already, but in a good way.
As a volunteer, I had to take care of the citrus battery.
What would that be?
Well, is a huge copper and zinc battery which creates, together with the lemons and oranges juice, an electric current. I was helping the kids to stick the fruits on the battery metal parts to make the chemical reaction possible. The result was to light on the spots and make the kids happy.
I felt very comfortable among the children this weekend, so at the end, I’m not sure if I was the adult one at the festival.
Beautiful weekend, beautiful people and lot of smiles!
