Come to the bar to pick up your very own seed card and start planting! Each seedcard is 5€ and can be played by the whole family!

Ernst Haeckel Fungi Colouring 

To see the beauty of Erst Haeckel's art inspired by science, take the time to colour in this naturalist's original illustrations of microscopic life. Celebrate these fantastically fungal illustrations by bringing them from black and white to making your own colourful creations!

Mushrooms & More Open Tour

Join us on an exciting sensory experience in our aquaponics greenhouse, where you can touch, taste and smell the variety of plants that we grow at Mediamatic. We will also be learning all about mushrooms and mycelium and how it can be used in the current projects here at Mediamatic. 

Do you want to explore your senses with us? Come join our open tour and sign up here!

Vizer en Lekkere Geuren Maken

Have you ever wanted to make the smell of a fart? Or of birthday cake? Or of your favorite flower? Come by the Aroma lab on Saturday and Sunday at 11:00 or 14.00 to start and learn about smell and how to create scents with our workshop tutor Martine Albitrouw-Segijn. 

Pizza & Kombucha

After the day of science and learning, you are more than welcome to stay for some tasty plant-based pizzas in our very own wood-fired oven, and our homemade kombucha to put your tastebuds in action!
