Petits Débrouillards' Safari Sciences is composed of 13 stands that challenge visitors with a variety of activities. Awaken your curiosity with active, participatory and experimental education that you can easily reproduce using everyday equipment. Before your scientific exploration, you'll receive a passport to complete at each stand. Each activity lasts between 15 and 30 minutes.
- Activity 1 - Electricity: We’re all bright sparks!
Discover how batteries and lamps work, and learn about closed and open circuits through a game of skill!

Ask yourself questions about known and unknown climate change phenomena and test your hypotheses in real time.
- Activity 3 - Biodiversity: up close and personal
Even underground, chemist Lavoisier's old adage holds true: "Nothing is lost, nothing is created, everything is transformed! From organic waste to earthworms and fertile soil, meet a family of earthworms and ask them questions so you can make the best compost at home! You can also take part in experiments on photosynthesis.
- Activity 4 – The alchemy of colours
Discover secondary colours by mastering primary colours! What if colours were physical as well as chemical?
