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!

Microbiologists deal mainly with detecting, identifying and cultivating microorganisms, that is bacteria and viruses. They examine their structure, development, bodily functions and their role in nature. Microbiology is an important and necessary scientific field because microbilological knowledge – gained through laboratory experiments and fieldwork – is used in medicine, agriculture, veterinary medicine, industry, environment and nutrition.
During the 19th Lower Siles [...]
You are what you eat – this is a popular saying and it's true. Quality and quantity of food we consume affect not only the look of our body but also the condition of our health and mood. How to eat to feel well and enjoy a good condition? How to consciously choose products in shops and make meals while we are being bombarded with highly processed food and fast food or foodstuffs labelled bio, fit and light? During the 19th Lower Silesian Science Festival we will try to answer [...]

At the Lower Silesian Science Festival, you will find a lot of events devoted to good physical condition and frame of mind. These events will be run by medically educated people. Their knowledge, imparted in an easy way, is bound to be more valuable than information found on the Internet. We are pre [...]
Cloning is a process of getting identical – in terms of DNA – organisms, cells and particles of the deoxyribonucleic acid, as a result of transferring cell nuclei. An organism that has been copied is called a clone. This year we are marking the 20th anniversary of the technique of cloning that enables to clone two sheep: Megan and Morgan. From that time on, animals have been cloned on a broader scale: cows, pigs, dogs and even horses and red deer. A question arises as to wh [...]

“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 [...]
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.” [...]
Mateusz Chorążyczewski, Lower Silesian Science Festival: You are a representative of a unit at University with an intriguing name – Department of Athlete's Motor Skills and Department of Physical Anthropology. Can you tell a few words about the workings of these institutions?
Dr Justyna Andrzejewska, Academy of Physical Education in Wrocław: Discussing all the research areas of the Faculty of Sport Sciences would take me a long time. That's why I'll focus mainly o [...]
