PETNICA – A STEP INTO SCIENCE

19 FEBRUARY – 3 MARCH

Organization: Petnica Science Centre and SASA Gallery of Science and Technology

For more than 35 years, Petnica Science Centre has nurtured and developed a distinctive approach to the scientific education of the young, and their work with high-school students is particularly distinguishable. Over the course of one-year cycle – within there are seminars and scientific camps – participants of Petnica’s programmes initiate, develop research topics, carry out tests, calculations and analyses, as well as reach relevant conclusions followed by scientific papers where the results get to be demonstrated. The last phase is the conference where young authors present these papers.

Over 80 research papers of participants of Petnica Science Centre’s educational programmes in 2019 will be presented in the exhibition at the SASA Gallery of Science and Technology. Research topics cover fields of anthropology, archaeology, astronomy, biology, biomedicine, geography, geology, social sciences and humanities, electronics, history, linguistics, mathematics, psychology, computer science, physics and chemistry.
