Malta’ Science and Arts festival, Science in the City, returns to Valletta on Friday 28 September 2018 from 6pm till midnight. This year’s message is a simple one – everyone starts at zero. We are born with practically no knowledge of the world around us but we all can and do learn, especially when the lesson is delivered in a creative and fun way.
As always, the festival’s programme will feature a wide variety of free activities ranging from art installations to exhibitions, science theatre, shadow puppetry, science film festivals to music, street art to live experiments, all related to science and research. One installation in particular is a giant computer mouse that will need to be pushed around by visitors. This mouse is complemented by high tech enlarged virtual artworks.
The festival is growing and this year activities will spill out into the Triton Fountain square, pass through City Gate, line the length of Republic Street all the way up to St. George’s Square and other centrally located venues in Valletta.
