Esplora provides online content to reach out to students at home

Esplora’s team members  have  worked on videos, graphics and animations aimed at disseminating fun content online through Facebook, Instagram and Youtube whilst school kids are stuck at  home. 

 

The Executive Chairman of the Malta Council for Science and Technology, Dr Jeffrey Pullicino Orlando, said that due to the current situation we had to close our doors to visitors. It is thanks to science that we will overcome this situation. Science -knowledge- will also help us to protect ourselves and our loved ones. Our team at Esplora will still be reaching out to you online.”

 

Starting from Tuesday 17th March, Esplora’s aim is to stream online engaging content such as mini Fun Science Shows via Facebook Live as well as other varied content. We will also be working with PBS on this initiative to ensure that we reach as wide an audience as possible.

 

As an interactive science centre, we always respond to current events and hence we shall also be dealing with Immunity and Health and Safety due to the present situation. We will be sharing experiments you can safely do at home, together with scientific facts and myth busters. In addition, every Friday, our programme development team will be speaking to you about interesting science projects through our blog.
