Bucharest

One Month in Research

From the starch that exists inside a potato, to food digesting inside a human stomach – Baylab Romania covers a wide range of topics.

Location

Bucharest

Country

Romania

Founded

2014

Participants

approximately 3,500 visitors per year (6 to 12 years old) – 8000 expected in 2017, due to addition of 4 more locations

Thematic Focus

Health and nutrition are the main focus of Baylab Romania. There, children learn how an effervescent tablet works, how we digest food, and they also investigate the starch content of a potato. They can also watch a plant feeding itself and absorbing water through its roots.

Background and History

While in 2014 it started as a pilot project (one week, 4 hours/day), in 2016 it lasted for one month in Bucharest and in 2017 we enhanced it via adding 4 more locations throughout the country. In the Bucharest laboratory, even 3-D holograms are available to young researchers, making complex experiments easier to understand.
