The end of last year brought me a “special” present. One morning I woke up and half of my body was having a life on its own.
I went on an ambulance for the very first time and spent the New Year’s celebration connected to a machine and working to gain control of my body and my life.
Now, almost half a year later I can say that I am back to ‘normal‘ life, although I have to admit that I will never be able to play handball at a professional level (says me, the person that never got to go to the gym);).
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.
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 coolesttoy 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.
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.
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
Halloween is around the corner and we are here looking for the perfect costume to wear.
If you, like me, are looking for a fun costume that does not make them sweat after 3 minutes running around and they can use once and again, then you should come and see @zygote_brown cardboard costumes.
Your kids will be the sensation of the night and of many other days to come.
We believe in creative, adventurous kids. Of all ages. Cute & kids.
We think that children can enjoy the same things that we do. Maybe from a different angle, but always adding value and a new perspective to our old way of enjoying things.
