We present the experience of developing workshops aimed at the public from 4 years old. The subjects of astronomy and microscopy were selected from the educational curriculum of El Salvador. For astronomy topics, we use teaching materials suggested by NASE. As for microscopy, the experience of Botanika in Bremen was taken as a basis. The workshop includes observations of the universe with microscopes and telescopes, to show in a practical way how small-scale universes make up large-scale universes.
