SCIENCE: HUMAN RIGHT | 10 and 11 November 2018

 World Science Day for Peace and Development
World Day of Science Centers and Science Museums

Città della Scienza joins the celebration of the World Day of Science for Peace and Development which also coincides with the World Day of Science Centers and Museums of Science: an occasion of great celebration and participation aimed at spreading the strong message of cooperation to international level of which science can and must be fly and vehicle!We host our beloved Festival of Science, Futuro Remoto as well.  Among exponents of research centers, universities and associations, between activities and scientific demonstrations.

On November 10th the “ISCSMD” is celebrated internationally, an acronym standing for “International Science Center and Science Museum Day” and Città della Scienza, the main interactive science museum in Italy, could not fail to organize a rich program for this special event, also considering its active participation in the ECSITE network and other international museum networks.
ISCSMD is a world celebration day born with the aim of demonstrating the importance and the cultural impact of the Science Centers and the Science Museums on people. It wants to emphasize the role that these institutions play for the millions of visitors who daily populate the exhibition areas, in increasing their knowledge and their awareness of a sustainable development necessary as the only solution to deal with problems such as: climate change, diseases , hunger and over-exploitation of natural resources.
Since its first edition in 2016, ISCSMD takes place on November 10th with the World Day of Peace and Development, established by UNESCO, to reaffirm the importance of science in and for society and as a science, peace and development are closely linked to each other.
The theme chosen for the year 2018 is “Science, a Human Right”, to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Audrey Azoulay, Director General of UNESCO, declares: “At ISCSMD, UNESCO invites everyone to exercise their Human Right to participate, to get involved and to benefit from Science. This is a right and is inherent in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which this year is 70 years old, but it is only when we actually exercise it as, for example, supporting scientific partners, we strengthen scientific culture in our societies.
UNESCO also calls on governments, industries, civil society and scientists to fully embrace the values ​​of responsible and ethical science. All together, we must strive to ensure access to scientific education to ever larger sections of the population, especially girls.”

Among the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), created and promoted by UNESCO, we focused on some through laboratories, scientific demonstrations and many engaging and stimulating activities.


We have inaugurated a new workshop space, the “Children Workshop”! It seems like a complex name, but identifies a welcoming and comfortable area where our younger visitors, from 3 years upwards, can find a child-friendly space, with tables and seats, where they let their imagination flow, and with some exhibits such as “Mirrors” and “Two in one” to accompany them, hand in hand, and step by step, in the world of science.There will be held on Sunday the “Animated readings” – inspired by the words of a fairy tale animated by a storyteller, children will be able to create a personalized design! Fantasy has no age!

Unmissable our appointments with:

“Researcher Craft”: How to participate in a research project? What is CHILD ROLE? How children are able to influence the choices made by parents, especially in the field of nutrition? And how do parents let themselves be influenced by the presence of children in their choices? We will understand this by participating in this survey and as a tribute for the participants, a tasty snack!
We were looking forward to the return of the most beloved workshop for all children, the “Nintendo Labo”! By integrating the new technologies with a good dexterity, discover with your parents “Nintendo Labo”: turn a simple piece of cardboard into something different, a motorbike, a fishing rod, a plane or whatever comes to mind! Then, add a Nintendo Switch console to bring them to life and enjoyment is guaranteed! Win a race, catch a fish, play a keyboard … With Nintendo Labo, everyone can experience the joy of building, playing and discovering. Have fun watching the workings of your creations: you could even invent new ways to play with Toy-Con! Try the new Toy Con set dedicated to vehicles and discover the driver who is in you!
After the great success of the preview, Sunday is on the planetarium “Far away Worlds: The Search for Extrasolar Planets“: In recent years the search for planets that orbit around stars other than our Sun has had an unprecedented surge. Today we know that planetary systems similar to ours are the norm rather than the exception, and the study of extrasolar planets has become the main way to try to answer a fundamental question: does extraterrestrial life exist? In this show we will discover the latest developments and future perspectives of the incredible hunt for the secrets of these distant worlds.

Haven’t you still visited the Corporea Museum? It is the only one in Italy, entirely dedicated to the “perfect” machine of the human body! A guided tour, in the company of one of our guides, will allow you to discover the secrets of our body and experience the exhibits that most intrigue you!

Which fish, molluscs and crustaceans live in the pools of the “Sea” exhibition? Follow the guided tour “Marine Ecosystems” and you will have the chance to cherish some living marine organisms in our Touch pool. What an emotion!
And if your children still want to learn, “create your marine animals”, a laboratory where you can color fish shapes, inventing new species, and then, as for “magic”, make them appear and swim in a large virtual aquarium .
A guided tour of the “Bugs & CO” exhibition is unmissable, the new exhibition space dedicated to the spectacular world of insects and more. For every man on Earth there are over 150 million insects. “The six-legged giants” have conquered almost all the habitats of our planet … it’s time to start getting to know them better.
The Live Show returns to the Planetarium of Città della Scienza! Among astronomers, stars and galaxies, an astronomer expert will tell the public, in real time, all that is shown on the dome of the Planetarium, to offer a unique experience of immersion in the depths of our universe. By integrating within it the databases of the main international space agencies, the Planet of the Science of Science allows as close as you can imagine to a real journey in space. “Life and Death of a Star” will allow you to retrace all the stages of the life of a star, from birth to death. What are you waiting for?

In addition, the 2D shows “From Earth to the Universe – From Earth to the Universe” will be at your disposal to discover the most important theories elaborated by man over the course of time in astronomy up to future prospects and, if you can not give up thrill of 3D, the “Robot Explorers” show to travel with probes, landers and orbiters in our solar system. Choices able to satisfy all tastes and needs!
