We had lots of new and exciting activities this year. Take a look and see what you could do.
See the program folder with the time schedule for a quick overview.
Many of the activities were also accessible to non-native speakers and to hearing impaired children. See the overview (in Dutch) and the announcement in Dutch Sign Language.
If you would like to roll up your sleeves yourself and want to find out how language experiments work, you can fully enjoy yourself with us. Below an overview of interactive scientific demonstrations and surprising language games in which you can participate. Discover the scientist in you!
