Popularization of Science  

Science Festiwal School is an educational undertaking initiated in October 2002 by The International Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology, The Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology PAS, The Institute of Biochemistry and Biophysics PAS and The Science Festival. In 2003 the organizing committee was joined by The Warsaw Agricultural University.

The main goal of SFS is to educate the public and to popularize biology in Poland. Within the SFS there are organized many lectures, seminars, presentations and workshops for secondary school students, teachers and any other groups interested in the area. It aims at improving knowledge in biology itself and its role in the society. The Nencki Institute has been organizing one-day workshops for teachers from all over Poland  for many years. The audience has the possibility to learn about recent developments in biology, discuss various issues in the area of psychology or medicine and meet the authors of biology textbooks. In 2007 sixth edition of the School was organized.. In 2006 the Science Festival School has been awarded the prize of Polish Press Agency and The Ministry of Science and Higher Education. We are proud to be a part of the event so highly evaluated.
