Science = Boring? You could be mistaken! A week? Yep, you caught us… These scientists could be failing their calculations, because we counted exactly 14 days. That is TWO weeks. Anyway… we have read all of hundreds of pages of the program, until we were almost lost. To start with we recommend you the Open Door-activities, among which are the Coca-Cola Factory, the Barajas Airport-from-the-inside, the control room of Metro Madrid or the nerve centre of El País newspaper.
