The PhysiScope and the Swiss TV channel RTS co-produce the weekly programme L’Oreille des Kids, a 15-minute show designed specially for 7 – 10 year old children, created and animated by the PhysiScope.
How do airplanes fly? What is static electricity? Why do some objects float while others sink? How do rainbows form? Through experiments commented by the PhysiScope experts, children playfully explore and discover science. Testing physics directly, stepping into the shoes of a researcher, doing fascinating hands-on experiments – these are the hallmarks of the PhysiScope approach. This fruitful collaboration with RTS encourages children to approach the major principles of physics with enthusiasm and fun.
A new season around the theme Science and Movies is currently in production.
