THE GREAT SCIENCE FESTIVAL RETURNS IN JUNE
This edition of the Festival, June 10 to 12will focus on the theme of Water in all its states. In an equally interactive format, but developed in compliance with the health measures in force, Eureka! will invite festival-goers of all ages to think about ways to preserve this natural heritage, learn about ecosystems and the impact of climate change, and discover a host of innovative water-related technologies. All in a format imbued with the playful, festive and even wacky signature that made Eureka! such a success for 14 years.
The Eureka Festival! will now be held at the foot of the Biosphere, in the heart of Parc Jean-Drapeau. Located on Île Sainte-Hélène, two minutes from the Jean-Drapeau metro station, this Espace pour la vie museum, dedicated to the environment, hosts exhibitions and artistic installations that invite dialogue between science, culture, social innovation and environment. The activities of the Biosphere allow curious minds to better understand the major contemporary environmental issues and to discover solutions to deal with them. Located in a true natural oasis, this pioneer of sustainable architecture offers breathtaking views of the city center Montreal and the St. Lawrence River, making it the perfect setting for the theme of THE WATER.
THE ONLY EDUCATIONAL FESTIVAL IN MONTREAL
In addition to igniting a scientific spark among young people and showcasing the incredible richness of our local science, Eureka! encourages citizens to develop a critical eye and a scientific vision of current affairs and the world around them. Like from Montreal the only educational festival for the general public, it is an unmissable event for promoting science, technology and innovation to a wide audience. The Festival contributes to mobilizing the world of scientific culture by offering each year to about fifty organizations, companies and institutions an exceptional showcase.
A CONTINUING DIGITAL ADVENTURE
Next fall, to promote the Festival and broaden its reach, Eureka! will continue the digital adventure, which began in 2021, by renewing the scientific content of its new edutainment platform. It will offer new activities highlighting cutting-edge fields: aerospace, technology, health and life sciences, earth and environmental sciences, etc. To explore this new virtual archipelago, go to: https://archipelvirtuel.festivaleureka.ca/
