The three main areas that the Ecsite AC 06 covered where:

  2. Science centres: Children only?
  3. What are they really learning?

The latest trends and new models in science communication were explored, new travelling exhibitions were presented, exhibitions techniques were shared, talks on enhancing the visitor experience were given.

Delegates participated in workshops , networked and worked on European projects, and found out the latest trends at the market at the Business Bistro, the market place of the conference. They enjoyed a nocturne in Technopolis, the Flemish science centre and had the chance to network with other professionals during a rich social programme among glasses of Belgian beer and real diamonds!
