Hiša eksperimentov is The Slovenian Science centre situated in Ljubljana - the capital of Slovenia. It is a nano Science Centre - small in size but filled with activities.

Our »specialities« are the Science Shows - we call them Science adventures. Here are some titles: Lightology, Colourology, Gasology, Eggology, CentreOfMassology, Pressureology, Smellology, Memoryology, ...
Science adventures are filled with experiments, interaction and humour wrapped in a story. It takes some time and effort to build a Science Show and we would like to share our experiences with you.

Therefore after the success of the first nine editions we are proud to organize the tenth INSPIRE (INternational »Science Performance Is Ready« Event). Participants will learn how to:

  • Choose a topic for the Science Show,
  • Start planning a Science Show,
  • Add humour without being silly,
  • Avoid mistakes and traps,
  • Create contact with the public,
  • Act in front of the public,
  • Communicate science.


Registration is already possible! The number of participants for the tenth INSPIRE event will be limited to 12 and to two persons per institution. Preference will be given in order of registration. (first come-first served).
Registration is only possible using the link below.

The registration deadline is
March 31st


The registration fee is 900 € (early bird registration up to March 10th is 700 €) and includes a lot of work, a lot of fun, some new knowledge, five lunches and three dinners and opportunity to take active part in the Sciencetival (Znanstival, May 31st to June 2nd 2024 in Ljubljana, www.znanstival.si).

The workshop gave me invaluable tools for communicating science through science shows. I had the opportunity to meet and work with creative people and we had the best tutors to guide us. Having completed the course, I feel truly inspired.

At the I got inspired to inspire.
Florentine Frantz, Austria

were five days packed with experience about how to make great live science shows, how to combine experiments, a story line, humor and visitor interactions. I met many enthusiastic people from all over the world and felt like a part of the Hiša family. So if you want to have fun, work hard, see a beautiful city, make new friends and learn that sleep really isn't mandatory, I suggest you get d right away.
Sven Dražan, Czech Republic

I'm very happy and thankful that I had the opportunity to be part of the -Workshop. In this week I learned a lot on personal, professional and of course on scientific levels. The workshop was very well organised and the program was a good compound of theoretical and practical units, which pointed out many different aspects of scieceshows. I'm thankful that we had so many great trainers and tutors from all over the world, who have been very inspiring and supporetd us developing our own science shows.

My impression about IS ...
... that you can:
bring plenty of ideas
... to the course
... that you
get help and feedback
... while you are there
and that you can ...
take loads, seriously loads of ation!
... back home

Yvonne Simon, Switzerland
gave me new ideas and inspiration. Met lot of new and interesting people in lovely Ljubljana.
Magne Hognestad, Norway
In my opinion iis a good way to understand many things which are closely related to science shows. I have deepened knowledge about behaviour which I could use in my science shows. I have met many interesting people and saw new experiments and many other good things which are hard to describe. You have to take part in !
Radosław Miernik, Poland
was a really good meeting of many other brilliant explainer and I think that comparing eachother is one of the best kind to enrich our work and mind.
I've really appreciated the different kind of ways to think about a new shows: just to make sudience fun, to show him some science law, to teach...etc
The evaluetion stuff has been for me a really important point, couse I've never done this after my shows
Thanks a lot

Claudia Giordano, Italy
Opening up someones mind, turning inside out, upside down, helps to find new perspective to the world.
Judith Mann, Germany
Love it!
When I arrived I felt very big, now with all the things that I learnt I feel small. But it's good! In the next show I will be bigger than before!

Miguel Augusto, Portugal
was a very well organised workshop, with a broad spectrum of topics. Great to work on the science show with other educators from other nations.
Joachim Solum, Norway
The 3rd workshop met my expectations. I met kind and helpful professional coleagues. I learnt new ways to do science shows even better. Thank you, I enjoyed it!
Mark Szutyanyi, Hungary
Very good organization and planning, especially the trip to the castle was excellent. Very nice people, very good teamwork. Perfect, that you forced us to stay in contact with the public from the first moment. A bit more time to work on the own show would be even better.
Andreas Hantschk, Austria
I had a really special week, which felt like a lifetime of joy and friendship, optimism and excitement and and and ... It was also a personal journey, after which I feel much more secure about myself and genuinely d to move on!
A big thank you to the organizers!

Felix, Austria
I got many professional contacts, many good methods for teaching and making science shows. I got d!
Peter, Hungary
Great overview of all the ingredients needed for a science show. The teamwork with the godfather was also very inspiring.
Marine, Switzerland
is not only the name of the course, it truely IS inspiring to be at Hiša, to meet other motivated science communicators. If I ever get bored of my job (hopefuly not) I'll come back to Ljubljana. Their enthusiasm is "contagious"!
Sabine, Austria
I was double inspired: first with the place, secondly with the program that I was really scared to attend. I thought Artists can't think of or do Science-Shows. But Art&Science go together. Face your Fear, get out of the box & be INSPIRED.
Nevine, Egypt
INSPIRE was for me one of my best weeks in my life. I got challenged in many ways, professionally trained, inspired with many new ideas and I met a lot of interesting people. Thanks a lot !!!
Kathrin Ballmann
When I chose to attend this workshop I didn't expect it was going to be so great! As a professional it inspires me a lot! The schedule is so interesting and well done and the Hiša's staff is special: you feel like at home. I recommend it to everyone interested in science communication to attend it. Now, in fact I am INSPIRED as a performer and I have new friends too! Thank you for all !
Serena, Italy
I learned almost everything I knew about Science Shows from scratch here. And let me tell you: It was amazing! The Hiša is is like a place for “science-hippies” – to come and do whatever their heart wants. I hope to come here again.
Florian, Austria
It was a really great experience. A little bit different that I expected because usually I don’t do Science Shows but now I feel ready to do it.
Michael, Austria
It was the best experience of my life !!! I not only met really good friends, I also learned a lot about shows and especially about life ! Thank you for INSPIREing me like you did, this week will stay in my memory forever!
Sofia, Portugal
The most challenging, but also the most rewarding workshop, I ever took part in! Any science communicator who performs science shows or demonstration lectures should attend INSPIRE!
Fredrik, Norway
INSPIRE is learning and working together with inspiring and inspired people.

Miha and his wonderful staff at Hiša created the perfect conditions for us to learn, explore, fail, succeed, laugh, educate, listen and ... inspire each other in a melting pot of cultures, languages and locations, which all came to eruption of scientific joy with the performances at Sciencetival. Thank you!
