This is the second phase of the Universidad de los Niños. Children and young people between the age of 8 and 14 are invited to enroll, if they have participated in the cycle of "Encuentros con la pregunta" (Meeting questions).
The participants get to know the scientific areas and research that exists at EAFIT. This happens together with the researchers - in their workplaces and with their tools of work.
During the six sessions throughout the year, a researcher hosts a group of children and tells them about his field of work, takes them to his laboratory and accompanies them in a small research task, related to the question of the day.
In each workshop, the children and young people participate in activities that are divided in three stages:
Here, the children learn about the experiences of the researcher in his field of research, his ideas and findings. They can ask questions and exchange opinions with him.
Participants do research that is related to the researcher's field of study, where they receive real information about their topic similar to the way a scientist does.
The members of each group meet with their researcher at his workplace to explore the environment.
