About the theme - Food for curious minds
The "Food for curious minds" theme offered room for countless metaphoric interpretations but also invited to tackle the concrete topic of food and energy, a burning global challenge. It was chosen to echo the theme of Universal EXPO 2015 in Milan: "Feeding the Planet - Energy for life", 1 May - 30 October.
Science museums and science centres are proud to provide their visitors with food for thought. To feed savvy audiences delightful and novel flavours, science engagement professionals need to nurture their own curious minds! This is what the 2015 Ecsite Annual Conference provided: plenty of food - for body and mind.
