Senckenberg Bookkids

Kids make books (2014–2018)

What did the world look like 100 million years ago? What does a scientist actually do? And for how long does an anaconda not feel hungry after eating a capybara? Answers for these and many other questions relating nature and science are sought by primary students in our Senckenberg book kids projects.

Their impressions from the museum are put into words and then, with the help of a rubber printing technique, they illustrate their texts. The result is a magical, funny book filled with exciting and interesting facts, which shows science from a kids perspective.

The project gives children the chance to learn about museums and science in a fun and accessible way including the chance to make their own book.
