The winners were invited to a Prize Ceremony in Brussels in September. German : … … … … …
  • sqdsdS English : Xperimania two started on Monday 13 October It has new activities. The new activities encourage students to investigate chemical and physical properties of every day objects. Lab reports with images/ multimedia files are uploaded in the online gallery Best entries will be rewarded by prizes: media players and fund for scientific classroom resources Last year, we also had 5 chats in English. This year, we are only going to have 4, but in different languages. On of the chats will be in German. The date will be announced in the website. Questions or comments via email to this address.
