What is EAFIT Children's University?

Our mission

EAFIT Children's University fosters critical understanding of scientific knowledge by children, young people, and mediators from diverse social backgrounds.

Our vision 

Inspired by curiosity and amazement as the origin of knowledge; the relevance of scientific knowledge in society; and the plurality of thoughts, perspectives and visions of the world, we aspire to be a program that:

  • Impacts the research system with reflections and actions that allow children and young people to build closer relationships with science and education.
  • Contributes in the analysis and search for solutions to the social problems faced by Colombian children.
  • Generates platforms that allow greater interaction of different social spheres with results and debates from scientific knowledge.
  • Produces knowledge based on reflection and research of its own practice.
  • Replicates its model in multiple educational spaces and generates a local and Latin American movement with its own identity, according to the needs and interests of the context.

Our principles


Children and young people are valid and active interlocutors in the construction of knowledge.


Scientific knowledge is relevant in human and social development.


The participation of diverse social groups contributes to the reduction of inequality.


The richness of difference nourishes the construction of knowledge.


Caring for yourself, others and the planet enables a sustainable community.
