The Festival has been cooperating for years with regional branches of Wroclaw University of Technology and Wroclaw University of Economics, Karkonosze College in Jelenia Góra and with the Witelon University of Applied Sciences in Legnica. The beginnings of such an event dated back to 1998 where the Festival has taken place in Legnica, Jelenia Góra and Wałbrzych for the first time. Subsequently, the Festival has been organised in the following cities: Ząbkowice Sląskie since 2002, in Zgorzelec since 2010, in Głogów and Dzierżoniów since 2011 and in Lublin since 2013.
Public consultations, provided for the PLACES project, with Wrocław inhabitants and inhabitants of the region took place on 25th September, during the 15th Lower Silesian Science Festival. The subject of the consultations was proposals for the Local Action Plan. Such proposals concerned education, commercialisation of knowledge and popularisation of science.
Ladies and gentlemen!

Organised at the Institute of Lower Temperatures and Structural Research as part of this year's Lower Silesian Science Festival, events were connected with the science activity of INTiBS. The institute deals with investigating physical and chemical structure of the solid body and its influence on physical, chemical and spectroscopic properties. The above-mentioned research is done in low temperatures.
This year displays dominated over other forms of activities ascribed to the F [...]
One of the major events that are held at Wrocław University of Technology is the Oxford Debate, which teaches how to conduct discussions, present arguments, speak in public and go into a verbal battle with an opponent. The rules are as follows: there are two teams, the first is from Wrocław high school and the second represents a high school from the region. Both teams take two sides of the argument. This year’s topic was on: What grows out of grains of knowledge? How [...]

Unihokey, TRX Partial Suspension Training, swimming, nordic walking – are only some of the sporting attractions prepared by the Academy of Physical Education for the participants of the Lower Silesian Science Festival. There was enough of diversity and a good fun combined with a lot of movement. Sport is not only health but above all a high dose of joy and pleasure – this is due to endorphins, i.e.hormones of happiness that are produced during physical activity. [...]

'I was brought up in such a tradition that requires students to be Columbus although we all know that America was discovered long ago,' says dr Marek Sienkiewicz from the Faculty of Painting and Sculpture of the Academy of Art and Design in Wrocław. 'These lands are being really discovered anew because everybody interprets them in a different. There's always space for new discoveries and it's worth doing it for yourself and your observations.
'I vividly remember a lecture during which windows flew' reminisces prof. Jan Miodek, a linguist and director of the Institute of Polish Studies, University of Wrocław. 'It might have been due to a crowd that assembled in too small room, as it turned out later'.
Miodek's lectures have always enjoyed popularity. Everyone could witness that during his inauguration lectures, organised as part of the Lower Silesian Science Festival. However, this year it [...]
“My favourite musical instrument is the choir,” smiles prof. dr hab. Marta Kierska-Witczak, who was involved in the Lower Silesian Science Festival as a co-ordinator on behalf of the Music Academy in Wrocław some time ago.
However, the choir is not a ready-made instrument from the beginning. It needs to be taught how to play. So much so that the conductor's vision is tantamount to the feelings of a single chorister. A case in point is a pianist who translates her in [...]
“It began innocently, from a lecture during the first edition of the Lower Silesian Science Festival in 1998,” mentions prof. Jadwiga Sołoduch from the Faculty of Chemistry of Wrocław University of Technology. “I gave there a lecture called From witches, magic, a crystal ball to real science”.
Professor explained how sorcerers and shamans opened the door for real science. They had their place in history – their magic and infusions prepared in the [...]
