Making science & technology fun
An initiative of the Nationaal Centrum voor Wetenschap & Technologie, the National Science Weekend has grown to include more than 180 locations throughout the Netherlands, including major museums, universities, research institutes and businesses.
An annual event for over 29 years, the goal of the weekend remains the same: inspire minds both young and old by demonstrating the capabilities of scientific and technological innovation in engaging ways.
What results is a mix of art, performance, lectures and debates that borrow concepts from scientific research and explain them through first hand experiments, demonstrations or tours.
From university museums and behind the scenes looks at Science Centre Delft and Waternet to learning how paintings are restored at the Rijksmuseum, check out the full programme to see what exciting activities take place near you!
