Description de l'événement
We are happy to announce that the 5th edition of NightScience will be held at the CRI on Friday the 10th and Saturday the 11th of July.
NightScience 2015 invites you to reflect on “Equitable Access to Scientific Research and Education” in the light of Low Cost Technologies and Frugal Innovation.
The STEM education studies since the 80’s have shown that digital technologies and hands-on experiment with scientific equipment - what F. Jabobs called NightScience - are good ways to improve science education and popularisation, but they are still too expansive to be accessible to the communities that need them the most, such as the people living in developing countries and educative organizations.
Because money shouldn’t be a hindrance to scientific research and outreach, a lot of people around the world are developing low-cost and innovative solutions to make science and research accessible to all. Join NightScience 2015 to meet some of these fantastic people!
On Friday the 10th, great speakers will give their insights on the following themes:
The universe of frugal science, technology and innovation
An ABC to DIY research
Debate: how compatible are technology and frugal innovation?
Open Access and the “invisible college”
STEM education: frugality and technology
Innovation agoras and citizen empowerment
Saturday the 11th of July will be dedicated to different projects:
- Itinerant Fablab Workshop
- Metafood, MetaLife, Metacode with the Paris Bettencourt IGEM team
- Open Science School
