The students were divided into three groups according to their age. The older ones had visited the company several times. Three locations were prepared, which the little guests visited.

In the "Analytical Laboratory" the children learned about how the study of metals is done with sophisticated modern equipment, they looked what the laboratory technician did and observed various scientific experiments.

In the "Research and Development" department, the students met with the company's specialists who develop new technologies. They made ice cream with liquid nitrogen, and learned about the special protective clothing for the experiments. The children learnt that it takes a lot of knowledge and hard work to be successful at work.
The Chemists from "Mad Lab" took care for the children's good mood. The time spent with them passed unnoticed in amusing games. For the first time the children made balloons with liquid nitrogen, bathed without getting wet and learnt how to make rose salad.

At the end of the event children took a group photo and received gifts. They all were impressed by what they saw and learned at Aurubis Bulgaria.
