EXPO module in VIDA! Science Centre
Join us in the nanoworld and the far reaches of space together with the visitors of EXPO 2020 in Dubai. You don’t even have to leave your region! 🚀
In October, the long-awaited World Expo kicks off and our region gets the chance to showcase the best of its innovations. A solo Micro & Macro exhibition in the Czech pavilion will show the world why we are the masters of microscopy and the space industry. Are you curious yourself? So you don’t have to go all the way to Dubai, a special version of the interactive EXPO module will come to you (maybe right to your city!)
What’s the plan?
👉 12 stops of the EXPO module in Brno and all over South Moravia
👉 MICRO MACRO quiz to test your knowledge of microscopy and space technology
👉 science and technology show Science and technology on the move! in 7 cities powered by our top science enthusiasts from Brno Observatory and Planetarium, VIDA! science centre, Lužánek Leisure Centre and Fablab Brno
👉 news from EXPO 2020 Dubai
Why MICRO MACRO?
🔬 The microscopes from Brno allow the whole world to look deep into the MICRO realm. We are home to the best players: Thermo Fisher Scientific, Tescan and Delong Instruments, building on a long local tradition of electron microscopy. They are thriving to the extent that a third of the world’s production of all electron microscopes is produced in Brno, and nowhere else in the world is there such a concentration of companies and research institutes involved in this field.
🛰 The space industry allows us a MACRO perspective. South Moravian technologies regularly cross the borders of planet Earth. In fact, we can do almost everything, from space science to development to actual manufacturing. And thanks to the great potential of local innovation, more and more commercial projects are being created. The Brno Space Cluster, a unique combination of companies, a research institute and the Brno Observatory and Planetarium, is dedicated to space business, education and popularisation of the field.
