4th INSPIRE – The Workshop for Creating and Running Science Shows

INSPIRE workshop for creating and running Science Shows

We are happy and proud to announce the fourth edition of

INSPIRE (INternational »Science Performance Is Ready« Event)

May 30th – June 3rd 2016 in

Hiša eksperimentov (The House of experiments), Ljubljana, Slovenia

During the five day workshop participants will very actively learn how to:

  • Choose a topic for the science show,
  • Start planning a science show,
  • Add humour without being silly,
  • Avoid mistakes and traps,
  • Engage audience in active participation,
  • Develop acting skills needed for successful performance,
  • Communicate Science.

The organiser of the event is Hiša eksperimentov – the Slovenian Science Centre. It is a nano Science Centre – small in size but powerful with activities. Our ‘specialities’ are science shows (or Science Adventures) enriched with experiments, interaction and humour wrapped in stories. It takes some time and effort to build a science show and we would like to share our experience with you.
We also organise ‘Sciencetival’ - the annual four days Science Festival on the bridges, squares and streets of Ljubljana (capital of Slovenia). Also this year Sciencetival will partly overlap with the INSPIRE workshop providing a perfect environment for the participants to test their learned skills in front of public.
The INSPIRE workshop is designed for activity or education departments and individuals who would like to acquire some knowledge from the field of creating and running science shows.
The number of participants for the INSPIRE event is limited to 12. Preference will be given in order of registration (first come-first served). Registration is limited to one participant per institution.

The deadline for registration is February 15, 2016 !!! Registration is only possible on the page: www.inspire.si .

Please read the announcement and the programme on this page. Register and get INSPIREd! We are looking forward to meeting you!

Hiša eksperimentov (The House of Experiments) is a "hands-on" science center. At Hiša eksperimentov, however, we are not just carrying out experiments. It is our activities that will tell you most about our work and what we do. Hiša eksperimentov is intended for everyone! In the activities of Hiša eksperimentov, science, learning, art and humor are all intertwined.
