Over 200 events are scheduled in this new edition of the Kielce Science Festival, mainly in the field of physics, medicine, psychology and history. The local community, and especially young people, will have the opportunity to discuss interesting topics with experts, to join guided tours, to watch films and multimedia presentations, and to take part in special workshops and competitions. During the festival, the local academic and research institutions will show how they work and what they do for the Świętokrzyski region.

These are some example topics:
