Science Festival 2017 in Luxembourg (Europe)

Makermag1-July 2017.

.

It is the first time that I visited the “Science Festival” in Luxembourg-City, although it is already on its 11th Edition. The first edition was run when Luxembourg-City was Europe’s cultural capital in 1995. This year there was a BIG press coverage and advertising about it so that I decided to go visiting it! I didn’t regret it and I will visit it again, hopefully next year it will not rain again!

WHAT is it about!?

(Start Text from http://chronicle.lu/category/things-to-see-do/biggest-science-festival-returns-to-luxembourg-next-week-with-50-workshops) Organised by the National Museum of Natural History (MNHN) and the National Research Fund (FNR), the purpose of the annual Science Festival is to present and promote science and research in Luxembourg and to encourage young people and the public to become interested in, experiment with and discuss science and technology. (End text…)

Luxembourg needs more people in Science, ICT, Research and through such festivals it tries to use the curiosity of youth to make them sensible to maybe direct them to study in these fields. It was a BIG success as far as I can say, last year they had about 12.000 visitors and more expected for this year. I saw a lot of youth sitting in the different ateliers, workshops to tinker around with lot of interest and motivation. I got told that there were even some kids visiting the place for the second day (Saturday and Sunday, it was open for the public) together with their father and that they spent about four (4) hours, that’s what I call passion! Looks like that there will be some future scientist growing!
