How can the childhood dream of flying in space come true, what is the life of gorillas like, how to make an interactive digestive system – children can find the answer to these and to many other questions if they visit the 11th Sofia Science Festival taking place on May 15 and 16 in Sofia Tech Park. 

There they will be able to meet former NASA astronaut Dorothy Metcalf-Lindenburger, world famous astrophysicist Jocelyn Bell Burnell who discovered the first radio pulsars, scientists and researchers. Visitors will be able to find out more about interesting phenomena which we see in our everyday lives, watch physical experiments with electricity, induction, pressure and magnetism, as well as find out about smart recycling. While the “Rapid blast corps” will demonstrate how copper can glow blue or green, how dangerous sulphuric acid is and why iron silicate is snow’s enemy. 

This time the highlight of the event is the meeting with the world famous primatologist and UN Messenger of Peace Jane Goodall. 

Jane Goodall is best known for her study of chimpanzee family and social life in Tanzania. Her story inspired millions of young people across the globe to believe in themselves and follow their dreams.
