Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

Activities 2012

Different hands-on experiments were presented to the general public through which researchers could communicate their work:

  • Wind and sun: they can move the world! Specific hand-on experiments related to energy and, especially, to wind power and solar energy as they have a significant importance in our islands.
  • Science and fun: several ULPGC researchers’ workshops related not only to the regular research but to relations between science and hobbies: robotics, model aeroplanes…
  • Everybody can become a scientist. ULPGC, Elder Museum of science and technology, Museum and archaeological parc Cueva Pintada, and CSIC-natural products and agrobiology institute organized workshops showing their work and letting people themselves do experiments.

The Drawing Contest had its own space in The Night.
