The Fábrica (or “factory”) is an old industrial building transformed onto a modern learning attraction for kids. It is located at the University of Aveiro. Ciência Viva (with locations in cities throughout Portugal) manages a diverse schedule of programs to entertain and educate kids, families and school classrooms.

Children can experience exhibitions such as Hands in the Mass (Mãos na Massa), an interactive exhibition in which visitors play with the laws of optics through the handling of an Optical Labyrinth. They can observe the differences in body temperature with a thermal camera. They also write messages in Morse code, or have their hair stand up with the Van de Graaff generator.

Creative environments, such as a theatre in a giant snail, a play kitchen, a TV studio and a Robo Room, make the learning fun and fascinating.
