Science Me! | 09-10 July | Geneva

The 11th Nuit de la Science (see here) will happen on July 9 and 10 on the theme "The Rules of the Game" in the gorgeous park of the Perle-du-Lac showcasing the Museum of Science History, organizer of this event that attracts 30-35,000 visitors on each edition.


On this occasion, the Chimiscope and the Museum of Science History invite the public to take part to Science Me!, the first European science show competition.

Under a large circus tent, teams of young scientists from all origins and practicing all sciences will compete under the form of 10-minute shows, in French or in English. At the end of each show, the audience will also be able to interact and converse with the participating teams.

The success of the demonstrations will be measured by applausemeter, while a jury of neutral and independent scientists will evaluate the quality of the shows on the basis of sound criteria (pedagogical and didactic aspects of the explanations, artistic and poetic dimensions of the presentations, fulfilment of safety regulations, interactivity with the public, simplicity vs. complexity of presented themes, scientific novelty). The three best shows of the weekend will be awarded after the competition.

Science Me! is financially supported by Agora, the instrument of the Swiss National Science Foundation aimed at widespreading the knowledges and the dialogues between the scientists and the public.
