In the very core of the city on Trubarjeva cesta Hiša eksperimentov (House of experiments) is situated. It is one of the first European science centers based on the rule: Do it yourself. It promotes science and learning it through doing it. Experiments are made on the basis, that everyone can touch them, smell them, use them, practically experiment with them.
They cover different subjects: from physics, chemistry, mathematics, biology, geography, anthropology, nuclear, computer sciences and others. During the week only school groups can visit them. On weekends the House of experiments becomes crowded with people, especially on rainy days many families visit it. Best time to visit it is at five o’clock, when science shows on different topics are presented.
Every year in the last week of May they organize festival of science called Sciencetival which is present on the street all across the center of Ljubljana.
I work here and it is really a magic experience. Being surrounded with young people gives me strength, confidence and shows that science is fun.
