The fifth edition of the “I Love Science” festival will be held from October 13 to 15 in Brussels. There are many original experiments, workshops, activities and exhibitions in the program of this event dedicated to budding scientists.
Beakers, Bunsen burners, printed circuits, microscopes, robotic arms and lines of code will turn Tour & Taxis’ hangars into laboratories so young and old can immerse themselves in the world of science. Dozens of interactive platforms will be brought together around different themes of the festival: art, technology, creativity, space, humanity, creativity and nature. For example, it would be possible to try glass engraving, drawing the future of the city, or sound painting.
Novice filmmakers can also make their own animated film, while adventurers and cosmic adventurers can take a trip to Mars using virtual reality. Discussions and conferences, particularly from Belgian astronomers, will also enliven the 11,500 square meter space that hosts the event.
Outside, there will be “science trucks” parked, where Birdman will skateboard on a hoverboard. The festival brings together about sixty institutions, associations and universities, and receives about 15 thousand visitors every year. Free, it aims to give young people a taste of science.
A study day is scheduled on October 13 in parallel with various activities. The full program can be found on the website www.ilovescience.brussels.
