The second “I Love Science Festival” drew more than 15,000 visitors this weekend
Hordes of visitors attended the “I Love Science Festival” this weekend. This now unmissable event for science fans has done a great job in raising awareness about science and new technology. More than 210 educational and entertaining activities were on offer to visitors of all ages to discover and experience while also having lots of fun. A unique opportunity to learn about topics often overlooked by the general public.
On the initiative of the State Secretary for the Brussels-Capital Region, visit.brussels and Innoviris created the “I Love Science Festival”, a festival of science and new technology accessible to everyone.
This second festival was held from 26 to 28 April at Brussels Expo and at BOZAR. This educational event gave visitors a chance to plunge into the world of science and new technology. From an escape room to a mobile planetarium to a virtual reality paragliding simulator, there was something for all tastes and all ages.
The Cap Sciences Science Trucks Festival was also a resounding success. Trucks, vans and other vehicles transformed into mobile laboratories and were assembled around the Brussels Expo grounds. They disseminated scientific culture by offering numerous activities, each one more creative then the last, in their travelling laboratories.
The work of Jeunesses Scientifiques de Belgique was also spotlighted during the festival. Young people, aged 12 to 20, had the opportunity to present their scientific projects to the general public and to receive expert opinions on them.
The “I Love Science Festival” is also the result of a collaboration with Brussels operators including BOZAR, which organised several activities around the theme “Speculative Futures”.
