Centro Ciência Viva de Vila do Conde   Site Map   Versão Portuguesa
The “Ciência Viva” Science Centre recommends schools and other institutions to make group visits.
In this case, the group should have at least 5 elements.

Before visiting us don’t forget to:
  1. Take note of all the issues you would like to bring up during the visit;

  2. Try to anticipate the issues that probably would be more interesting to the group;

  3. Prepare questions/challenges that can be solved with the experiments and explanations given in the visit;

  4. Transform the visit in a discovery game

Know the rules in order to bring the best environment for you and for the other visitors:
  1. The assistants of the Centre aren’t mere employees with normal vigilance functions .They were specifically trained to aid the public in the interpretation of the phenomena/experiments. If doubts exists, they are the ones to ask: They are there to help.

  2. In case of schools visits, the accompanied adults are responsible for the Childs behaviour in the centre. A visit can be cancelled if bad behaviour (of one or more elements) arises and persists;

  3. The movement of the persons in the Centre is coordinated by your assistant, and the group shall always be accompanied by a responsible adult.
