Powered by ADHD – Kids Dig Science 2018/19

20 October 2018 @ 3:00 pm


Kids Dig Science is coordinated by the Science in the City team at the Malta Chamber of Scientists. This season, the team will once again meet with the scientists to find out the latest in all things science, then cut it down to size for children above the age of 6. It was conceived to inspire curious little minds, to ignite their passions and foster creativity. If you’re looking for a way to inspire your children, Kids Dig Science is a must.


Date and Time: Saturday, 20 October 2018, 3pm – 5pm
Venue: Studio A & B, Spazju Kreattiv
Price: €6

It’s ADHD awareness month and we want to help children understand that different is great too.

Whoever said the heart works in mysterious ways knows not what he is saying. We know exactly how the heart works, it’s pretty straightforward really, blood in, blood out. Now, the brain is a whole new kettle of fish. Did I say fish? What I really meant is chemicals, electric impulses, strata, synapses, lobes, cortex, neurons… ok you get my drift. Mysterious is an understatement and yet a team of researchers at the University of Malta are working on unraveling the differences between a neurotypical brain and those which function with ADHD.

Now then how do we go about explaining ADHD, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder to kids? That’s up to our puppets to figure out and your kids to find out, in one of our most mindboggling adventures to date.
