A New Edition of 'Scientific Superheroes' Kicks Off!

Today, June 26, is a very special day! As has been the tradition every summer since 2014, the “Scientific Superheroes” Urban Camp kicks off! This recreational alternative has welcomed over 650 children across its 9 editions!

Targeting children aged 6 to 12, the camp is held at the Scientific-Technological Complex of the University of La Rioja in weekly sessions until Friday, July 28. The initiative aims to foster emotional bonds and relationships among participants, while instilling core values such as tolerance, respect, and collaborative work. All this with a special focus on science and technology. There are still spots available for the session starting July 17!

The program is unique and varied. It covers exciting and fun topics, including workshops and activities related to the origin of the universe, superpowers, strength, speed, water, and intelligence. And there are excursions on Thursdays!

There are two schedule options: half-day and full-day. The half-day runs from 9:00 AM to 1:30 PM, with a pickup service available until 2:00 PM. The full-day schedule starts at 9:00 AM and ends at 3:30 PM, with early drop-off from 8:00 AM to 9:00 AM and a pickup service from 3:30 PM to 4:00 PM. Both services are completely free.

Our unique selling point is the inclusion of hands-on activities and real scientific experiments. Science as a central component offers a unique and enriching educational experience. This year, there are thrilling scientific experiments, technology and design workshops, scientific challenges, and science outreach projects. Moreover, we’re incorporating more physical activities and using a gamification-based methodology, which is a learning technique that applies game mechanics to the educational-professional field to achieve better outcomes.
