Travel to the Cyprus Science Festival in April 2011….

Get ready for Lift off !  The Cyprus Science Festival is picking up speed as time approaches for lift off.

Sotira Trifourki and organisers are aiming to facilitate the approach and attractiveness of Science though participative actions; talks with scientists, trying out experiments and demonstrations will permit a sort of augmented reality in the perception of the world that surrounds us.
The intention is to plan for a monthly immersion of science packed activities bringing fun, awe and inspiration – all around the common theme of Science that repeats itself annually.

The theme of the festival for 2011 is “Space – the next frontier” recognising the 50th Anniversary of Yuri Gagarin’s first manned space flight into Space

As in all participative action, the festival programme will cater with a variety of events for everyone and whose most important objective is being able to bring people together to explore science and technology.  The inspiring movement wants us all to celebrate the beauty of science through hands on interactive demonstrations, science cafe’s, exhibitions as the countdown to the festival starts.

Until then, you’re invited to join facebook groupvolunteer, and/or attend the Cyprus Domefest to get into Science.
