The Science Festival celebrates 30 years
For the 30th edition of the Science Festival held 4–9 October, Genopole, the University of Évry and UNESCO’s Learning Cities program teamed to invent novel activities and events to spread the word on sciences and technologies. Two escape games challenged the public in virtual laboratories, where they learned about insects as a more ecological source of nutrition, or sports sciences as a means to measure the benefits of exercise in health and sickness. The program also included online or in-laboratory meetings, experiment stands, and games at the cultural space MicroFolie in the Évry 2 shopping center in partnership with the city of Évry, The DNA Learning Center, Planète Sciences and Sénart’Lab. The website made specifically for the event and available throughout the year offers more than 80 activities and contents.
