Sitges hosted on Friday 15th a new edition of the Dia de la Ciència al Carrer (Day of Science in the Street). More than 25 displays and experiments, prepared by several entities and educational centers, were seen at La Fragata. 1,300 students participated in this annual meeting for scientific dissemination. CAFE was represented at the exhibition by the project’s ESRs.
The City Council of Sitges, together with the Garraf Educational Service, organised the day, framed within the Science Week at Garraf, offering a unique opportunity for primary and high school students to approach science in an interactive and fun way, explained by the researchers and professionals behind said research.
The CAFE project was present at the exhibition doing experiments and explaining how extreme weather effects affect human communities and how the CAFE project is working on improving the sub-seasonal forecast of such events. The CAFE ESRs took the lead in preparing and doing the experiments with the local students that approached the stand, as part of the programme of activities for the 1st CAFE School.
