The Science and Technology Week of the Region of Murcia is considered one of the largest science outreach fairs in Europe with the participation of more than 2,000 volunteers and 25,000 visitors. During the three days (20-22 October 2023) that are developed, researchers from different institutions and areas of knowledge try to spread science to the public in order to awaken scientific interest and scientific vocations among the younger public.
The public who attends this event each year is mainly focused on more than 4,500 students of secondary and higher education, but activities are developed for all populations to stimulate and raise awareness about science “taking science to the street”.
