Getting to know nature with Koumáci

Realization period: 23.10. 2020 - 31. 1. 2021
Provider/Programme: State Environmental Fund of the Czech Republic
Principal investigator/project coordinator: Techmania Science Center o.p.s.
Category: Call No. 7/2019: Natural gardens
Project ID number: 1190700488


The project aims to modify the playground in a natural style for the Children’s group Koumáci at the Techmania Science Center. Due to the difficult access to nature in our immediate area, the garden is currently very austere and has only the basic elements for free play and education of preschool children. As part of the implementation of this project, we will use the spatial potential that the current garden offers to create a natural environment for the development of children's environmental feelings, research, awareness of natural phenomena and processes, as well as the development of psychomotor skills.

We will specifically enrich the current garden with a willow structure, a threshing path, a fruit tree, a birdhouse, fruit bushes, raised flower beds for planting vegetables and herbs, and a natural shelter with a seating area and a water tank for watering cultivated plants.

The benefits of the project will be of an ecological and educational nature. The result will be an improvement in the microclimate through the greenery, the elimination of unpleasant impacts of industrial space in the summer months, and the improvement of the aesthetic and ecological function of the Techmania Science Center with a positive impact on human health. There will also be an increase in visitors' awareness of the natural sciences, especially ecology and rainwater management (see groundwater loss issues). The primary effort in connection with the educational nature of the project is to strengthen the public's relationship with the immediate environment to better realize its responsibility for its state.
