Why is Science Weekend organized?

Science Weekend is there to give young and old insight into the world of science and technology in an accessible way. In this way, children and young people are introduced to applications and professions of the future in a fun way.

Why participate?

By opening your organization to the public, you show how important science and technology are. At the same time, you share the mission and message of your organization with a broad, diverse audience. It is an opportunity to show what your organization is proud of and to make science and technology accessible to everyone.

What does participation entail?

Organize a public activity during Science Weekend, which is suitable for children between 8-14 years old. You as an organization determine how this is done. Everything is possible: from tests, experiments and workshops to guest speakers and guided tours.

Inspiration sessions

Weekend of Science cordially invites you to the next online inspiration session on May 23. In this interactive workshop, science communicator Kim van den Wijngaard takes you through the process of designing a concrete activity for Science Weekend.
