Universcience is delighted to have welcomed some Ecsite members for its annual Science Festival

Universcience welcomed on 6-8 October 2023 four Ecsite members at La Cité des sciences et de l’industrie in Paris for its “Fête de la science” (science festival). On the road to the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic games of Paris, the festival explored the links between sport and science (health, body, performance, neurosciences, social sciences) with a doorway to Europe and the world. The audience had the opportunity to discover the best science shows related to sport and science!

Esplora Science Centre (Malta) put a show on to explain how the body acquires energy, which is then used for physical activities. Through visual experiments and demonstrations, the audience followed the path of energy changes to show how athletes optimise their performance in a variety of different sports.

Experyment Science Centre (Gdynia, Poland) invited to open workshops related to sports, ranging from physics to human anatomy. The audience examined their skin with a digital microscope, conducted electrolyte tests in isotonic drinks as well as ordinary orange or lemon juices, and lots more!

The Center for the Promotion of Science (Belgrade, Serbia) went to Paris with its brand new Climate Capsule. Through a multimodal experience of a dystopian setting in the year 2057, a narrative was created to provoke a subjective feeling of the anticipated future and its consequence for the human body. Echoing the new permanent exhibition Climate emergency at the Cité des sciences et de l’industrie, it raised many young adults willingness to act against global warming!

The Cité des sciences of Tunis (Tunisia) encouraged the audience to understand how the brain coordinates physical activity, to approximate their centre of gravity and to build a model to reproduce the movements of flexion and extension of body parts.

Universcience team is grateful to their colleagues for their fascinating shows and workshops. We learned a lot from each other! This is what Ecsite is all about: exchanges and dialogue with the great family of science engagement organisations.
