The Zacatecan Council for Science, Technology and Innovation (Cozcyt) is inviting girls and boys between the ages of 6 and 12 to participate in the Caja de Luz Virtual Workshop, which will take place on Friday May 14, from 1:00 p.m. 2:00. This evening, with the participation of the plastic artist Claudia Cordoba.
The activity will be developed by the Interactive Science and Technology Center of Zacatecas Zigzag, in cooperation with Suma Ciencia y Arte de Recreación en Cadena, AC, which in 2021 implements a virtual program in the country to bring children closer to science, technology and the humanities, through the arts.
For this reason, the meandering team will implement the Caja de Luz workshop, an entertaining scientific activity mixed with the arts that will take place in the framework of the World Day of Light, celebrated on Sunday May 16, whose aim is to promote the progress and contributions of light to the development and life of human beings.
As part of the dialogue between science and technology, the humanities and the visual arts, in the virtual workshop – integrated into the programming of Experimenta con el Zigzaglas – participants will be able to build a light box, inspired by the work of the Japanese artist, Taizo Matsumura.
The activity will be guided by the meandering staff and Claudia Cordoba, a plastic artist with a master’s degree in artistic production, a member of the timeshare group and producer of #Labores Feministas, a series of capsules for disseminating the artists’ work.
Thus, boys and girls learn about the origins of the phenomena that produce a rainbow of colors, and enter themselves into the fields of knowledge of optics, light and art, and from here comes the invitation to participate in the activity that will be held. Off via Zigzag Facebook.
