Summary

The project gives opportunity to kids from the Europe's poorest regions to visit Muzeiko, the only children's science center in Bulgaria. Muzeiko aims to sparkle kids' curiosity towards art and science and help them discover and re-discover the world through play. What happens often is that this world remains uncovered for many. Your support will cover the cost of the admission and guided tour of school groups in Muzeiko for low-income families and poor regions in Bulgaria.

Challenge

Education in Bulgaria is passive, lots of text and facts and little in terms of practical training. Books tend to be complicated, with heavy scientific explanations in a difficult language. Only a limited number of schools have specialized labs, bringing a microscope in class is a huge event that kids talk about for months. The socio-economic factor is another burden in Bulgarian educational system - extra curriculums are accessible to a small number of students mainly living in big cities.

Solution

Muzeiko with its interactive content and exhibition offers an alternative to the traditional science education at schools. The programs and exhibits are based on the theory of learning through play and applied activities, multiple intelligences, suggestopedia, and other techniques for accelerated learning and expanding kids' potential. We offer various programs and activities each of which piques kids' curiosity about science, engineering, ecology, communication and the arts.

Long-Term Impact

We believe that the inspirational effect on kids visiting Muzeiko would motivate teachers to apply similar techniques they see in Muzeiko in their classroom. Furthermore, the simple visit to the center itself would broaden kids' horizons and show them the world in different perspective. Every child deserves to witness from Muzeiko magic. If we manage to change one's life and sparkle the interest towards science to even one little explorer from underprivileged family, we would have done the most.
