This is a family exhibition about construction, houses and living. Visitors will learn how to build solid and high buildings. They will also understand what technologies are hidden in the walls of our homes. The exhibition will help to peep into the future, where humanity will print concrete and make building materials from waste.
The transfer of this exhibition was organised by the Association of Science and Museum Centres of the Netherlands (VSC), and its transportation to Ukraine was made possible with the financial support of the National Museum of Science and Medicine (Leiden), the Sonnenborgh Museum and Observatory (Utrecht), and the NEMO Science Museum.
Some exhibits demonstrating scientific phenomena related to water and air were donated by Pidpa/Hidrodoe Science Centre about water (Herentals, Belgium). We also received materials and equipment that will be used to conduct interactive educational programmes, science shows and summer camps. The exposition was transported thanks to the beneficent help of the "Dovgyi Family Office" investment company (Kyiv), which is a permanent partner of the Junior Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.
All exhibits and exhibition materials will become part of the exposition of one of the regional educational centres of the Junior Academy of Sciences. Soon, exhibits from Finland, Germany, Switzerland, Slovenia, the Czech Republic and other countries will also arrive.
About the JAS educational initiative:
Due to russia's military aggression, millions of Ukrainians are forced to flee their homes and seek refuge in safe areas of Ukraine and abroad. Among them are about a million children of all ages who require emotional release, moral support and conditions for continuing their education and leisure activities.
The Junior Academy of Sciences of Ukraine has proposed a comprehensive programme to address these issues. We are planning to open regional science centres with exhibition spaces and training laboratories on the basis of the regional branches of the JAS in the western and central regions of Ukraine. This initiative was supported by science centres and museums that are members of the European Network Ecsite.
Within this project, about 20 European partners offered to provide us with scientific museum expositions and individual exhibits. In particular, science centres from Germany, Denmark, Belgium, and the Netherlands have already provided their exhibits as part of humanitarian aid.
On December 7 last year, we opened the Museum of Science of the Junior Academy of Sciences in Chernivtsi. Our partners from the TECHNOSEUM State Museum of Technology and Work (Mannheim, Germany) donated the Optical Illusions exhibition.
And at the end of December 2022, the Museum of Science in Kyiv resumed its activities with an updated exhibition “Winter Sports”, which arrived from the Experimentarium Science Centre (Copenhagen, Denmark).
Since 2023, the work to open a science centre in Uzhhorod on the basis of the Transcarpathian Branch of the Junior Academy of Sciences on the premises of Uzhhorod National University is in progress. Our French and Polish colleagues have joined the project.
