The Discovery Club in the Researcher's House
What you'll find at the Researcher's House
This is a place where parents, accompanying guardians and children can have fun, explore and do research. The Discovery Club is a new concept where science, leisure, fun and learning are combined. The Researcher's House is always accessible and can be visited free of charge during opening hours. Trained educators, ecology-teachers and biologists can be consulted at any time. Please note that children's guardians are responsible for supervision. Children can not be dropped off unsupervised at the Researcher's House.
What's there to see?
Meeting and peacefully observing a wide variety of animals is definitely one of the highlights here! You'll learn a range of things about insects, small rodents and many other animals, including where they originally came from, what conditions they enjoy and what they need for perfect care.
Summer Adventure on the Island
Observe strange animals and discover life in a drop of water under the microscope whilst visiting the research tent in SUMMER.
St. Martins has a Kids Discovery Club that can be visited on Summer Island this year too, where you can learn about nature. Heaps of fun can be had whilst creatively crafting, inspecting insect hotels, building nest boxes, using the microscope, doing research, using nets or catching insects.
