In a fun and playful manner, visitors will learn about topics like the production of fabric by the silkworm and the making of honey by the bees. A special attraction is the cockroach race in the baratódromo (a cockroach racing track!). To complete the day, visitors can see a coffee plantation and get to know its story.
