TRUE or FALSE: the fun science exhibition

From September 20 to January 8, 2024

Touching a toad will give you warts… We produce more ear wax (cerumen) when we are stressed. Eating cheese at the end of a meal will prevent caries. The peanut is used to make dynamite. TRUE or FALSE? These are just a few examples of what you will discover. The true or false statements are divided into five categories (animals, nature, health, sciences and technology) and are arranged in the form of a game. This is an occasion for having fun as a family or with friends, while de-mystifying what we believe and stimulating our scientific curiosity as well. Each response is accompanied by a demonstration, a photo, a video or a specimen as evidence. Truly, we should not always believe what we are told!
