On Friday, 23rd June IBEC, in collaboration with IRB, will celebrate another edition of Kids’ Day, when staff and researchers from the two institutes are invited to bring their children for a morning of science activities.
Kids’ Day is an opportunity for IBEC members to show their children their workplace, and gives them the chance to be a ‘little scientist’ for a day.
Who can participate?
To make sure that we have a manageable and safe number of kids in the lab, we have limited the number of participants to 60. Registration is on a first-come-first-served basis and priority will be given to the children of IBEC scientists and staff, and then extended to nieces and nephews until all spaces are filled.
The activities will be targeted to children between 3 and 12 years old, with the kids sorted into activity groups based on their ages. It’s recommended that kids be at least in P3 to assure that they will enjoy the whole event.
All 3-year-old kids need to be accompanied by a parent or a guardian. The other small children (4-5 years) can be accompanied by a parent only if they consider it necessary. Due to space restrictions, parents of older children do not need to be present during the activities. Volunteers will look after the kids at all times. (If you are interested in volunteering for this, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org)
More details soon.
