Science is Wonderful! is a free exhibition which brings the world of science to the public. Fighting cancer, slowing down global warming, preventing hunger and drought, facilitating human life in space... it is all part of the variety of activities schools, families and young people can discover at the event. Through hands-on experiments, live demonstrations, face-to-face chats with researchers, Science is Wonderful! shows how science impacts our daily lives. More than 5,000 people took part in the 'Science is Wonderful!' event in Brussels in 2018. Watch the video to get a glimpse of what to expect:

Science is Wonderful! is the perfect opportunity to encourage children’s interest in science. Kids as young as 6 can try hands-on experiments at the many installed stands with scientists who also tell them stories about their life as researchers. The European Commission organises bus shuttles to facilitate the participation of Belgian schools to the event at any time on 25 and 26 September 2019. Schools should register here to book a visit and bus ride!

This year, the European Commission organises Science is Wonderful! together with the first edition of the European Research and Innovation Days (EU R&I Days) which will take place from 24 to 26 September in KANAL – Centre Pompidou, also in Brussels.

The EU R&I Days will bring together world leaders to debate and shape the future of research and innovation. Co-creation and engagement with stakeholders will be the main topic of the first European R&I Days. The aim of this event is to help build the strategic priorities for the first four years of the implementation of Horizon Europe (2021-2027), the EU’s next Framework Programme for Research and Innovation.

At each of the 67 stands at the two events, researchers will share their project and passion through presentations, activities and games. Visitors will be able to learn from international researchers who will expand on their research projects through participatory, informative activities.
