More than a hundred schoolchildren - aged between 6 and 12 years old - have participated in the second edition of the "Cienceando" camps, a space for fun and learning about science organized by the Science Museum of the University of Navarra.

During the month of August, children have been the protagonists of various activities on nature carried out in person at campus of the University of Navarra: measuring water quality in the Sadar River, identification of species, making nests for birds, viewing insects with a magnifying glass, "Land Art" and many crafts related to biodiversity.

The Science Museum of the University of Navarra has implemented a specific protocol against Covid-19 so that the camps can be carried out safely. One of the prevention measures has been the configuration of "bubble" groups, i.e. units formed by 6/7 schoolchildren and two monitors without contact with the rest of the groups. "In addition to ensuring the use of masks, distances and frequent hand washing, we have carried out PCR tests on all the monitors and we have taken the children's temperature twice a day", says Marta Revuelta, manager of activities at the Science Museum of the University of Navarra.

On the other hand, the Science Museum developed a version of online camps, through its web page, during the last week of July. Under the degree scroll "Cienceando desde tu casa" the schoolchildren were able to carry out different activities about nature every day.
