About Festival

Festival in the Region
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 - PLACES
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.  
The Stationary Edition of the Festival completed
  Ladies and gentlemen! The Stationary Edition of the Lower Silesian Science Festival (LSSF) has finished.

Österreich-Bibliothek in Breslau for LSSF
Prepared by the Austrian Library, the events at the LSSF were addressed for children, youngsters and adults. School students from Wrocław and Sława found out about Austrian literature, including sagas and legends from Tyrol, Upper and Lower Austria, Styria, Burgenland, Carinthia and Vorarlberg compiled by Friedl Hofbauer. Besides, the participants got to know the extraordinary adventures of little Francis based on Schulgeschichten von Franz’s recording and rendered by Christne N& [...]
Chinese elements at LSSF
 This year’s Lower Silesian Science Festival couldn’t take place without Chinese elements. Every year the Confucius Institute prepares a wide range of workshops and lectures at the University of Wrocław. Participants tried their hand at calligraphy, made their own Chinese lantern and tied traditional Chinese knots. Note that it is not a piece of cake to accomplish it. However, the younger participants completed the above tasks successfully – they made beautiful l [...]
University of Environmental and Life Sciences at LSSF
The 20th Jubilee Edition of the Lower Silesian Science Festival at the University of Life Sciences gained a lot of publicity. 50 events of various kinds took place within the 5 festival days. Such events attracted a diverse group of people who are interested in science, from the youngest to seniors. All started a week earlier during the Park of Knowledge that was held at the Old Town Promenade. Beehivemania drew crowds enthralled by the life of bees. The participants could see what hap [...]
Don't threaten us with Lyme disease - a rundown of the debate
  A debate entitled “Don’t threaten us with Lyme disease” took place as part of the jubilee edition of the Lower Silesian Science Festival. The debate was held by dr n. farm. inż. Patryk Matuszek (Director of the Training and Scientific Information and Product Manager for Lyme disease in EUROIMMUN Polska) and dr n. med. Marcin Czarnecki (Infectious Disease, Liver Disease and AIDS Clinic in Wrocław). Problems bound up with Lyme disease diagnosis and treat [...]
Ecological picnic on the occasion of the LSSF
Discovering the secrets of water (especially rainwater), participating in the events organised by the Hydropilis team and taking a look at specialist equipment was only a preview of what MPWiK had prepared for the festival participants. This venture was organised as part of the Lower Silesian Science Festival. The knowledge town was located in Na Grobli on the premises of Stara Ozonownia. During mutual play and discussion we showed our guests the way we conserve the environment. Th [...]
And you? How much do you know about the EU?
The European union was founded on 1st November 1993 and unites 28 democratic states. It has its own anthem. Although a quiz about this international institution might have well surprised adults, it was mainly addressed to primary school students. The event was organised by the European Information Point Europe Direct-Wrocław. During the classes the kids got to know some basic information about the EU, including its member states, symbols and the most important institutions. We thank th [...]
After 20 years...
As part of the 20th edition of the Festival, a meeting for people who have made significant contribution to the creation of the Festival was organised. This way we wanted to recognise such people involved in an event that takes place in 11 Lower Silesian cities and attracts thousands of science fans; an event that has become a permanent fixture in the calendar of cultural and scientific undertakings, not only in the region but also in the whole country.   During the meeti [...]

Don't be ashamed of becoming Columbus. Art full of discoveries
'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.   Sienkiew [...]
Please don't confuse verbs with pathos!
'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 [...]
Music and psychology that is how beauty shapes a good man
“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 [...]
Chemical witch that disenchanted science
“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 [...]
Clear a mine, and later suppress riots in a town. How does the virtual reality help soldiers?
When he said to his Math teacher he was planning to go the army, she wrung her hands and uttered: But you are such a good student! Father, non-commissioned officer, military brother recalls this situation with a smile.”It was meaningful,” said Major Marcin Bielewicz, a lecturer from the Military Academy of Land Forces in Wrocław. “I became a scout and I'm a scout now because I don't stop being a scout, after all. Later I knew that army is my cup of tea.” [...]
