4th SEE Science Festival

21. February 2014. MUSE, Trento

MUSE

The opening of the new Museum of Science, MUSE, in Trento, Italy, was celebrated by 30,000 visitors on 27 July 2013, and to date more than 240,000 people have visited. The building, by architect Renzo Piano, is a state of the art design, reflecting the surrounding Dolomites. The 12,000 m² permanent and 3,700 m² temporary spaces employ new and innovative presentations, exhibits and experiences, including a tropical greenhouse, which have been hailed as ground-breaking. It is inspiring for all: young and old, teachers and students as well as families and visitors. Many commentators have said it is the world’s best science museum. Visit www.muse.it  or better still, come and enjoy.

Festival Theme: Making science for a better life

The 4th SEE Science Festival: Making science for a better life, will be open to the public from 10am to 6pm,  on Friday 21 February 2014, at the MUSE, in Trento, Italy. With a focus on ‘hands-on’ and ‘discovering by doing’ visitors, especially school students, will enjoy, and maybe even be inspired by, what they experience at the festival. There will also be a special international flavour as numerous activities will be presented by SEE Science Partners from countries in the south east of Europe, including Hungary, Austria, Bulgaria, Greece, Romania and Slovakia.

The 4th SEE Science Festival will continue to address the main aim of SEE Science Festivals - to raise public awareness regarding science, innovation and technology linked to the objectives of SEE Science project. By stimulating and inspiring interest in science and technology among young people, the Trento festival aims to encourage young people to think about courses of study in the science and technology fields, and ultimately to consider careers in these areas.

As with the previous festivals (in Bulgaria, Hungary and Greece) the activities have been prepared by the SEE Science Partners from countries in the south east of Europe, including Hungary, Austria, Bulgaria, Greece, Romania and Slovakia. These activities demonstrate science in a fun and interactive way, and allow visitors to experience the joy of creating scientific mini projects, hence our theme: Making science for a better life.

SEE Science, a three year EC part-funded project, has promoted science and innovation to young people in the SEE region. Drawing on the strengths of the project partners, from different countries, the project has also successfully developed a network of science centres to give a focus to innovation, science and technology.
