The Festival of Science

The Festival of Science is an event organized each year in October by the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation. It allows children and adults to undergo an initiation in astronomy while participating in varies activities and workshops at the Planetarium. The popularization of this discipline is a way to show a lot of people, who seem to see this activity as an elitist one, that they are wrong!

The activity program varies according to the occasion. Last year, children were able to discover archaeological excavations during a workshop.

For adults, the topic was chaos in the Astro. They were in a room in which some objects were scattered. They were asked to look at the objects and say what they were used for and how they worked with the help of a scientific mediator.

If you want to know the basics of chemistry, this Festival of Sciences will entertain you and deepen your knowledge!
