Science and technology are all around us each and every day. NEMO transports your pupils into a world of everyday objects which are nevertheless very remarkable. Pupils learn by getting involved, and learn a lot about the world around them while having fun. The inviting exhibitions appeal to pupils in both primary school and secondary school.
