Benjamin Franklin Science Corner


To promote the immersion in science to children, adolescents and students through after-school programs focused on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics). These activities are conducted in a non-formal education methodology. We create a learning environment outside the scope of compulsory education where creativity and science combine to reach meaningful learning.


A Paraguay where science education is incorporated and motivated from an early age for a future with more female and male scientists working in Research and Development.
