We are an nonprofit interactve museum with 12 years of experiencie about teaching young and not too young people. The opportunity of showing how the chemintry is part of our lifes by an interactive way is something very important and special, and more for a country like Colombia. Also, there's a big opportunity for making the young people to interest about this part of teh science and, specially, to women.

In this order of ideas, we are going to make a special route inside the museum, where is going to be showed the most important milestones inside a time line.

Because of that, we are aible to learn more about how to improve each stage of the route, and which experiments should be the best for this idea.

If anybody needs our help, don't forget to ask us. If we are in the capacity to help we will.
