Every summer, the Wolvendael park situated near BIRA-IASB, is transformed into a universe of its own. People, families, anyone can bring their tent and spend the night under the stars, following a busy afternoon bursting with all kinds of activities. The scientists of the Institute do not miss an opportunity to share the wonders of science, and the knowledge and wisdom that research has brought them, with the public. It is always a pleasure to tell the stories of the natural world, especially to the children, whose curiosity knows no bounds.
This year, these stories centered around:
- the solar cycle
- atmospheric turbulences
- the International Space Station
- a telescope to try and catch a glimpse of what isn’t eclipsed by the city lights
