The event designed to help people of all ages engage with science and technology is back on 26 and 27 October. This thirteenth edition backs sustainability by cutting its paper consumption, instead using digital options such as an activity programme using QR codes.
This edition of the festival marks three important landmarks for science:
- 150 years since the publication of the table of elements.
- 50 years since humans reached the moon.
- 500 years since the death of Leonardo da Vinci.
These three events will be reflected in many of the near 200 hundred activities being organised for the Science Festival. Science in all its complexity also has its place and will be made accessible to people of all ages through numerous formats: games, conferences, shows, workshops, experiments and more.
The activities are adapted for children according to their age, including a section for youngsters up to the age of 6 and another, new this year, for children over 16.
The Science Festival features 24 different sections and is being held at the Moll de la Fusta wharf from 11 am to 6 pm on Saturday and from 11 am to 6.30 pm on Sunday.
