This year will be the third edition of Science in the Citadel, which had its official launch today by Minister for Gozo Dr Justyne Caruana.
This free festival will have something for the whole family to enjoy, and is taking place in all areas of the Citadel, on Saturday, the 27th of April, between 10am and 6pm.
Dr Caruana said that all activities during this festival will be aimed at those who want to participate and learn about the various sectors of science and voluntarily pass on their knowledge to others.
“With today’s technological advancements, we need to be prepared and festivals like these bring us close to the technological and scientific world, and now more than ever, science is becoming a necessary topic for our livelihood, said the Minister for Gozo.
She added that, “this science related festival is very important, because it introduces children to the world of science from an early age.”
Justyne Caruana also praised the fact that this initiative has brought together the voluntary sector, education and businesses to explore what science has to offer, while also exposing Gozo’s potential.
Festival organiser Collenn Bower, provided details of some of the exhibits that will be available on the day, including agricultural and marine sciences, artificial intelligence and digital games.
