On 22 May 2015, the University of Barcelona opens its door to citizens to celebrate the UB Science Festival. The main objective of the activity is to bring people closer to the research activity developed at the University in an amusing and innovative way.
Throughout the day, UB campuses organise different science dissemination activities —a gymkhana, workshops, lectures, games— that will emphasize the studies developed by researchers in every subject area and describe to what extent does research contributes to the progress of societies.
It is the first time that the UB organises an activity that involves the whole university community and nearly every UB school and faculty. The Historic Building hosts the science gymkhana. Two turns are offered: one in the morning from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., and one in the afternoon from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The programme of events taking place at each faculty and school is available on the website section “Programa”. Some activities require previous registration. Form is available in their descriptions.
