The Malta Independent on Sunday - - LIFESTYLE & CULTURE -

Science in the City 2018 was an­other huge suc­cess as it saw around 30,000 peo­ple fol­low the trail from the Tri­tons Foun­tain Square to St Ge­orge’s Square in the cen­tre of Val­letta, one ac­tiv­ity at a time. Amid laugh­ter, ex­plo­sions, fire, mu­sic, science, the­atre and dance, peo­ple were en­ter­tained by the un­ex­pected that en­gaged all the senses, in this cel­e­bra­tion of science and re­search. This sev­enth edi­tion was also sup­ported by the Val­letta 2018 Foun­da­tion.

With over 80 re­searchers, 400 vol­un­teers and 100 par­tic­i­pants, this EFFE (Europe for Fes­ti­vals, Fes­ti­vals for Europe) awarded na­tional fes­ti­val is truly a com­mu­nity event that should not be missed. “If you didn’t make it this year, we strongly sug­gest you block the evening of Fri­day, 27 Septem­ber 2019.
