2014 Sofia Science Festival begins on May 8
The annual Sofia Science Festival, an event offering fascinating attractions from the world of science to visitors of all ages, will be held in the Bulgarian capital city from May 8 to 11 2014.
“From the microscopic world of nano- particles to the mysteries of the infinite cosmos – human curiosity knows no bounds, and on the festival programme, you’ll find something interesting for every age , profession or occupation,” organisers of the festival promise.
In previous years, the event – held in Zaimov (Oborishte) Park and organised by the British Council with the support of the Ministry of Education and Science – has drawn enthusiastic crowds.
The 2014 programme is online in Bulgarian and an English-language version will be available later.
As the programme points out, some events are suitable only for those over the age of 15. All events are marked with recommendations about the ages for which each is most geared.
At the official opening on May 8, Professor Robert Winston, well-known for his several BBC television series, will speak on the issue of genetic techologies and present ethical questions in the history, meaning and use of genetic engineering in reproduction.
