Join Science is Wonderful!

The European Commission funds excellent young researchers across the EU and abroad through the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions, allowing them to study a topic in depth that they care about.

Science is Wonderful! bridges this research with schools across the European Union. It celebrates the value and impact of EU-funded research by giving primary and secondary school students the chance to interact with leading researchers and innovators, learn more about their work in engaging formats and ask questions about scientific careers. Since its inception in 2015, Science is Wonderful! has organised an annual science fair that interactively showcases research projects and innovations through presentations, hands-on experiments, games and quizzes.

The next edition will take place in Brussels on 16 & 17 March 2023 at the Maison de la Poste, Brussels, and will feature 100 researchers from across Europe.

This edition will include interactive presentations, hands-on experiments, games, and quizzes. Participation is open to everyone – families, school classes, fans of science – and free of charge. Only school classes or large groups (15 people or more) should register. If you are an individual or a family, you do not need to register and can simply come join us at the science fair.

Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions

Science is Wonderful! is an initiative of European Union’s Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA), the reference programme for doctoral education and postdoctoral training. Committed scientists funded by the MSCA bring their science closer to children and heighten young people’s interest in science and research careers in fun, inspiring ways. They are also strong role models for children and teenagers from all over the world.

The MSCA also support the European Researchers’ Night, a popular science outreach event organised annually in several European countries and beyond, and Researchers at Schools, which fosters direct interaction between researchers, teachers and pupils.
