SciCo Cyprus organises science festivals in order to bring science to the general public in an original, interactive, and entertaining way. In these festivals, everyone - regardless of age or profession - has the opportunity to explore, interact and discover the science, technology and innovation that are part of our everyday lives.
The festival programme includes interactive exhibits, spectacular experiments, hands-on workshops, performances, educational activities and games, science and art exhibits, talks and café scientifiques by distinguished Cypriot and foreign scientists.
Mediterranean Science Festival: In December 2015, SciCo Cyprus has co-organised with the CY Research Promotion Foundation the 1st Mediterranean Science Festival (MSF15). MSF15 took place at the Carob Mill Complex in Limassol Cyprus. The Youth Board of Cyprus was also a co-organiser. MSF15 was very successful attracting 9300 visitors (including more than 4000 were children). The 2nd MSF, MSF17, will take place between 26-30 April 2017 at the Old Port Square in Limassol, Cyprus.
In addition our team is involved in other science festivals run by SciCo in Greece:
