Working with paper
age: 6/11 y.o. (together with an adult)
In its apparent simplicity, paper conceals invisible aspects that our five senses can rediscover and transform into knowledge. This activity is an invitation to discover the soul of paper, its infinite possibility to transform, to become malleable, to retain the memory of gestures and time also by using some reactants or instruments.
Play with objects
age: 8/13 y.o. (together with an adult)
Houses are micro-worlds that hide unexpected playful elements. Rooms, corners, drawers and shelves are inhabited by known or strange-looking objects, with secret, invisible properties that only a new way of seeing can bring out. Using curiosity, imagination and creativity, the ordinary turns into the extraordinary and things at home can take on an identity, a personality and become the protagonists of games to invent and share with friends.
Chair and chairs
age: 3/11y.o. (together with an adult)
How many types of chairs are there? Is a chair without armrests always a chair? And in your house, how many different chairs are there? This activity is an adventure that starts from one chair and goes around the house, taking inventory, room by room, of all the possible chairs in your home environment, by drawing, describing or photographing them. Up to imaginary, invented, improbable chairs, where you can sit however you want, upside down, curled up or lying down comfortably.

Machines that transform objects
age: 5/13 (together with an adult)
Everything can be transformed, nothing is destroyed. The things around us come from long natural or industrial transformation processes. Plastic bottles are turned into sweaters, newspapers were once wooden benches, textiles can be produced from organic waste. How do things transform into other things? Can we invent a machine that turns windows into light bulbs? What would that machine be like?
