Why a Science Festival?

Organized by the Ministry of Higher Education, Research and Innovation since 1991, the Fête de la Science offers thousands of events open to all (many activities are adapted to school audiences, from kindergarten to high school ), free, inventive and fun. It is an opportunity to meet scientists from all fields, to discover the work of researchers, to share knowledge, to explore new knowledge and thus to better understand science and its challenges.

Thus, this event aims to:

promote knowledge sharing and exchanges between researchers and citizens;
promote the work of the scientific community;
facilitate access to quality scientific information;
allow everyone to better understand the challenges of scientific developments and thus promote active participation in public debate;
discover the work of scientists and the professions resulting from research;
raise public awareness of scientific culture;
stimulate interest in science among young people, curiosity about scientific careers, encourage vocations.

The program

To find events organized in your region, you can consult online the program of the Science Festival by carrying out a search on an interactive map combining several criteria: target audience, location, type of activity (workshop, exhibition, game, visit, etc.), themes (life and health sciences, environmental sciences, sciences of the engineer…), accessibility.
