CUTE&KIDS LIKES, DISCOVER, LEARNING IS FUN

ERESCIENCIA – a scientific platform for everyone

ERESCIENCIA-BLOG-DIVULGATIVO-CIENTIFICO-CUTEANDKIDS-BLOG

I got curious about this project just after discovering their first pic on Instagram. Although I am not very scientific, as Conchi is, I find science very atractive and I try to learn as much as I understand (science was never my major) to be able to share it with my kids.

Today I want to share a fantastic project that just have started: a platform where little and grownups can learn about science in a funny and easy way and with the best content: ERESCIENCIA. 

I am an oldie in the 2.0 world. After 12 years browsing the internet, not so many new projects are able to surprise and atract me. Sometimes I feel that everything is already out there or there is only a commercial background underneath. This is not the case.  

Behind ERESCIENCIA (you are Science) we can find Maite Pérez Cidoncha, a bio chemist and virologist devoted to investigation for 13 years. Already as a little girl, she was fascinated by nature, science and story telling. 

ERESCIENCIA was born trying to mix all her interests and mainly, as a way to bring closer science to real people. From her point of view, scientific papers and dissemination are targeted to the scientific forum and not to the whole population. 

Science is fascinating and surprising and you belive it or not, it affects all. It is an intrisinc part of what we are and surrounds us in our daily life.

This is why her favorite target are women of all ages, as in the past the discipline seemed to be associated only to men. But the truth is that is opened to everyone: inquisitive people, eager to learn and understand. Women and men that want to approach science with their kids but they do not know how to do it.

ERESCIENCIA is an educational scientific project oriented to grownups:  BIG INQUISITORS and children: LITTLE SCIENTIST. 

In the web you will find a blog, full of interesting articles, a webshop, e-books and all her experince in the form of workshops, talks and personalised online support oriented to families. 

The web is in Spanish, but Google translator is always there to help. On top, Maite is Spanish but she is living and working in London, so you can always contact her if you are interested.

Is your child a dinosaur fanatic? Does your little girl love astronomy? Are you trying to foster such interest but you do not know how to do it? Do you want to introduce them the amazing world of science but you do not know where to start? In the online sessions, Maite will assess you, offering all kind of resources focus in your children needs.

Maite is also developing content for the little ones: experiments, videos and lots of fun facts.

And now that Chrismas is behind the corner,  you will be able to find the coolest toy selection, books, activities and funny plans that will develop a scientific thinking and a critical mind in your little ones , two basic abilities for the adults of tomorrow. 

This is one of the products you can find in her WEB-SHOP. 

With sections like #recomendacionesdelosviernes (#Friday recommendations), very interesting articles that help us understand something so extended as lactose intolerance,  or why leaves are green. Every month Maite talks about women scientists that have broaden human knowledge. 

BOTANICUM is one of the books that you can find in the SHOP of ERESCIENCIA

She has also developed some EXPERIMENT GUIDANCE e-books, with 10 experiments that can be done at home, easy to follow and understand and some suggestions for continuing exploring. 

With every experiment we learn something new and understand better the world that surrounds us. But also they make us go beyond the WOW! moment, and we end asking ourselves about the meaning and reason of what we are experiencing

There are 2 guides published:  SCIENCE IN THE KITCHEN and EXPERIMENTS GUIDE: AUTUMN. 

From CUTEANDKIDS we want to invite you to bring science to the little ones, to explore with them and understand everything that surrounds us from a more scientific point of view.

Let’s go and dress a lab coat! And do not forget the safety glassess!

Maite, welcome to the 2.0. At home love all your NEWSLETTERS !

I do not know if I will be able to “infuse” the science virus to my little girls, but at least they will be able to understand a little bit better the complex world we live in. 

+ info

And if we can make a suggestion, we would love to see ERESCIENCIA  also in English 😉

It is time to disconnect, close the computer and focus on what it is really important. Time flies!

Let’s enjoy this Summer time with our friends and family. Learn something new, jump into the swimming pool as when you were only 8, lay down and look at the starts, have a picnic by the sea, bake a cake,..

We have prepared some posts for the Summer time but will be back in September, ready to share with you again everything that amaze us in the kids’ universe.

Thanks for being always on the other side of the screen.

See you soon!

APRIL 2018 | CUTEANDKIDS likes…

CUTEANDKIDS-BLOG

April is here! In the north of Spain where I live,  it usually rains a lot this month. We have a proverb: “Marzo ventoso y abril lluvioso hacen a mayo florido y hermoso”. In English is something like ‘ April showers bring May flowers. ‘

So let’s enjoy these last days of bad weather playing indoors, while the so awaited long days’ light come through the windows, drawing  magic shadows and announcing that soon we will have all the time to spend the day outside.

We are looking forward for the Summer time!
