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.

Current Affairs

Chamber pots, stones and poisons, that is meeting with history
The Science Festival is a golden opportunity to time travel and meet history. The past has a great influence on how the present has been formed. Learning about history lets us understand the world better. As part of 19th Lower Silesian Science Festival, a film “Żydzi” [Jews] by Tamara Włodarczyk will be screened. The film was produced in 2014 by the Ethnographic Museum – Department of the National Museum in Wrocław. It tells the story of a Jewish community living [...]

Where are sirens in the desert from?
When we open the Bible at the chapter thirteen of the Book of Isaiah, we can read one of the most famous prophecy concerning Babylon. In a descriptive way Isaiah delineates what the fate of the most powerful city of that epoch is. The prophet portrays a deserted place before the reader. Here is the huge city, sometime teeming with life, which becomes a place full of wild animals – owls, ostriches, billy goats, jackals and hyenas. Such animals, avoiding contact with people, aptly [...]

Chat wit Tadeusz Dobosz - Let's talk about horrible things
Prof. Tadeusz Dobosz from the Department of Forensic Medicine of Wrocław Medical University in Wrocław says “Crimes are not often committed. They only hit the headlines very easily.” He claims that Polish newscasts resemble more a crime column than a news programme. That's why a lot of people have a conviction that the world has gone to the dogs. “I remember how I was working in the police lab. The same abominable things took place. Even a well-known case of c [...]
Chat with Paweł Zagożdżon - weapon for a bear, rock investigation and detecting stones
He always came back from holiday at the Baltic Sea with a bag full of pebbles; the room was bursting at the seams. His parents – geographers – didn't bother because they understood their son's passion. “I was looking at my collection and wondering: why is this pebble colourful? Why is this crystal a crystal?”, recalls dr Paweł Zagożdżon, a geologist from the Wrocław University of Technology. “To find answers to such questions I decided to study at [...]
