QUANTUM SCIENCE CENTRE
The QUANTUM is a STEAM (Science, Technology, Education, Arts & Maths) centre that can pop up anywhere and at any time and that can be in two or more places at the same time. It is ENTANGLED with SOCIETY with 'quantum packets of information' - other science centres and cultural institutions in Europe, with nodes of industry and innovation, with civil society, schools and educational institutions and, most importantly, with the citizens themselves.
The QUANTUM promotes knowledge and participation at the intersection of the arts, humanities, science and technology. It is conceived as a poll for innovation and culture both in terms of its curatorial agenda and its innovative education programmes. Inventions, science, discoveries and hands-on experiences: all are there. This unique gallery will showcase cutting-edge developments in science, technology and the arts. The project is developed in collaboration and with direct participation of local universities, especially science and technology departments. Artists and scientists, equally local and European, will be invited to share resources and ideas and to implement them.
The Pop-Up Museum and events are an educational programme organized by the QUANTUM Centre, dedicated to improving equally children’s and adults’ awareness and understanding of science and technology issues, beyond educational curricula and popular knowledge. It is organized as a science/tech mobile medium hosted by various institutions for better impact, such as schools, universities and other public places.
