Science and Technology Week in the Slovak Republic
The goal of the Science and Technology Week in the Slovak Republic is to increase awareness of the public about the work of science and technology in society and in everyday life, to support and increase interest of young people about science and technology and their careers in science, as well as to support participation of the public in development in science and technology and transfer this knowledge to society via intensive dialogue with the public.
Science is above all a quest for knowledge and how it can be used to improve our lives and our world. Science and Technology Week’s mission is to create a totally new perspective on science.
But Science Week is more than a ‚quest for knowledge‘, it is also about having fun. The emphasis is on showing, rather than telling, Europeans and Slovak too, how science and technology affects them, from the simplest gadgets to the most sophisticated technology. Science and Technology Week wants to bring the challenges and excitement of the world of science to young people around Slovakia.
Prepared and organised by the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport of the Slovak Republic in cooperation with the Slovak Centre of Scientific and Technical Information and National Centre for Popularisation of Science and Technology in Society.
