For the first time ever, the MINATEC Science Fair, held during France’s national Science Week, will welcome elementary-school students. On Thursday, October 9, five elementary-school classes will come to the Science Fair, discovering booths with activities designed just for them. As always, the goal is to spark interest in science from the earliest possible age. A talk on the exploration of Mars, open to the general public, will be held on the same day.
The Science Week will continue on Friday, October 10 (with 500 high-school students expected) and Saturday, October 11 (open to the general public). A total of 150 people will man the fifteen Science Fair booths and workshops at Maison MINATEC and in the Phelma lobby. Some 5,600 visitors came to the three-day event last year.
