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. Amidst 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 7th edition was also supported by 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 27th September 2019. It’s going to be bigger and better than ever,” said Dr Edward Duca, Science in the City’s manager.
