Free Workshops

Chemistry Experiment

Take part in exciting hands-on experiments and scenes from Marie Sklodowska-Curie’s life, a Polish-born physicist. Curie was a scientist who conducted pioneering research on radioactivity, the first woman to win a Nobel Prize, the first person and only woman to win twice, and the only person to win a Nobel Prize in two different sciences. Marie is an excellent role model for budding scientists.

Photon Robotics

Photon is an interactive robot for child development designed and produced in Poland. It is the innovative work of graduates of the Bialystok University of Technology in cooperation with psychologists from SWPS University from Warsaw. Photon is the first robot in the world that develops with a child and helps children explore their creativity and imagination.

All-Day Activities

Our open explore activities include more than ten hands-on activities that incorporate STEAM learning, several of which are inspired by Polish inventions. More details to come!

Poland Science Day is also part of the 11th annual Kids Euro Festival, a two-week long festival of European arts and culture that provides free activities to DC metro area children and their families. For full lineup of events, visit
