Copernicus Science Centre


Home > Copernicus Science Centre

Each year the Copernicus science centre is visited by more than 1 million guests. Nearly half of them happens to be students and teachers, for which Copernicus became a valuable destination for educational field trip. The schedule of the centre is created in collaboration with representatives of various environments, which create a modern culture of educating students of Poland. A visit in the Copernicus centre enriches the educational program and allows to complete the goals of the program basics of many subjects in a very innovative way. As each year, we prepared quite a few new events for school groups and teachers.

New scenarios in laboratories

Starting on September 20th we invite students from junior high schools and up to take part in new workshops in our laboratories. In the physics laboratory they will find out the differences between the molecules of water and other substances, and in the biology laboratory they will be introduced to the water cleaning system. Be sure to also check out the chemistry laboratory, where the students can discover how the catalysts work, and the robotics workshop with the programming and mobile robot course. These classes allow to complete the goals of the program basics on many subjects in an innovative way.
Paid entrance. Reservation required. Classes from Tuesday to Friday.

A limited exhibit: Swim or die
The “Swim or die” exhibition from the Czech Techmania science centre, shows various aspects of man’s contact with the element known as water. The pressure it makes, the floating of objects, the sea currents, the floating of ships and submarines – these are just a few of the subjects of the experiments available on the exhibit. Here we can find many connections to program basics from the physics, geography, technology, biology, history and safety education. The exhibit is accompanied by special miniworkshops, science demonstrations and laboratory activities. In the treadmill there are new sets to experiment with.
The entrance to the exhibit is included in the entrance ticket to the Copernicus Science Centre. We recommend free workshops for teachers, which will help plan the visit with the students.

The “New world in motion” exhibit
A new exhibit opened in march 2016 is 80 precise display units, which give the students more chance to experiment on their own. Sometimes they get to discover more than the author expected them to. The changes made in the exhibit show the directions of the intense development of the Copernicus centre: creating display units, designing interactions and engaging the visitors in the process. Vibrations-waves. Electricity-magnetism. Air-water. The subject zones, in which we separated the exhibition’s display units, allow the visitors the discover the nature from various perspectives.
The entrance to the exhibit is included in the entrance ticket to the Copernicus Science Centre.

New shows in the planetarium
Each year we add new movies and shows to the program complete with astronomical news and information about the most interesting things happening in the sky. In the new school year we have something special for the students of junior high school and up – a new movie titled “The invisible universe” which uncovers the mysteries of the dark matter. Once a month we will be showing it in the original language version. This might be an interesting English language class. For students ages 7 and up we recommend “Polaris”, in which the characters are asking questions, making hypothesis and checking them by observing the sky.

Classes for teachers
The teachers’ classes allow to introduce teachers to educational spaces of the Copernicus centre and plan a visit with the students. We recommend the special classes that accompany the “Swim or die” exhibit. On Thursday afternoons we invite you for cyclic meetings for teachers, during which you can get introduced to various educational possibilities of the Copernicus centre and also find out more about the activities and special classes for school groups.
