An exhibition based on Montessori ideas, that allows the children play with Cosmo elements

The Cosmos in your Hand

Biella, Italy
“The Cosmos in your Hand”, this is the name of the interactive exhibition specifically conceived for children from nursery and primary schools. Thousands little astronomers have already had the opportunity to get excited at school, touching with their own hands the solar system, the constellations, the atoms, the day and night in a series of laboratories “delivered” to their classrooms...
Introduction

What is The Cosmos in your Hand?

What we do?

The exhibition opens the “space of Cosmo” to the research of the visitors, invited to touch with their own hands, see for themselves and interact with devices representing the wonders of the cosmos and the extraordinary human ability to understand and learn.

Why we do it?The experience, created to talk and interact with the younger children, reveals the existence – when stimulated – of a precocious interest for things related to scientific research and questions about the universe. The exhibition is recommended to all the teachers who want to involve their pupils with scientific topics from a very early age

impact:

700 children in our annual public pre-school and primary school workshops in Biella

 300 families in our one-off workshops all over the world

 2000 children and adults in our interactive performances in public spaces all over the world 

300 adults in our training courses on Montessori Cosmic Education
