The Athens Science Festival is one of the biggest celebrations of science and technology in Greece. Over a week’s time, every spring, students and other visitors from the wider area of Athens take the opportunity to explore science in fun, innovative and interactive ways. At the same time researchers, teachers, distinguished scientists and artists give their best to communicate science and make it part of their audience’s everyday lives.
Exceeding 33,000 visitors in 2015, the Athens Science Festival not only achieved its original objectives, but also managed to broaden them. Once again this year, it keeps its promise to its audiences by connecting science with everyday life, promoting its role in the society, communicating high quality scientific research made in Greece, debating and looking for answers to complex and controversial scientific issues, inspiring and creating new standards and encouraging young people to consider a career in science. However, its main achievement is that it has proved to its younger visitors that science is not only about learning but also about having fun!
