This event will be held this year in Sarajevo, Banja Luka, Bijeljina and Mostar where many attractive contents will find their place at the same time too.
In Sarajevo, this event will take place on September 26th at the Vilsonovo šetalište (Vilson’s promenade).
“You will have the chance to research innovations, science achievements and various science projects with us, from 17:00 o’clock to the late night hours. You will be able to spend a totally different family night where everyone will get the chance to find out something new, try different experiments, enjoy quizzes, workshops, screenings and other fun contents. On top of it all, we have organized a concert by some funny professors with who we will watch the stars and travel through time.” – said the organizers.
The organizers of this event are Oxfam’s office in Sarajevo in cooperation with the Institute of Hydrotechnics Sarajevo – HEIS and Tidea company from Banja Luka. They invite the exhibitors at the science fair and demonstrators to apply:
“Once again, we invite all organizations, science and research institutions, companies and individuals who are related to science in any way and who haven’t yet apply to do it now. Besides, we are looking for demonstrators or science promoters, students who have an interesting science project which they could present during this event to those who will attend.
The application deadline is until September 10th so there is not much time left.
This year, the motto of the event is “Path to science”. It will, as a part of the campaign which uses traffic signs as basic, direct citizens towards science contents and develop their interest for the thematic units of the event and acquaint them in that way with science researches and innovations.
