The Week of Science and Technology begins on Monday
The 17th annual Week of Science and Technology (WST) in Slovakia will start on Monday, November 9, and will last until November 15, 2020. The Week of Science and Technology in Slovakia is organised annually by the Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Sport of the Slovak Republic in cooperation with the Slovak Centre of Scientific and Technical Information and the National Centre for the Popularisation of Science and Technology in Society.
Interesting lectures through the ZOOM application which include space, cosmology, comets, asteroids or the Sun itself were prepared by the Astronomical Institute SAS. The Institute of Measurement Science SAS offers a virtual "walk" through its laboratories. In the online lectures of the Institute of Molecular Biology, you will learn whether proteins have their face, or about the code of life. The Biomedical Research Center SAS will post contributions on its website or Facebook site on topics such as how do they perform tests in the Center, or why vaccination is important.
It will certainly be interesting to check your knowledge of the Slovak language through a questionnaire on the website of the Ľ. Štúr Institute of Linguistics of the SAS. The Institute for Research in Social Communication has also prepared an online lecture on intimacy and politics. Online events are also offered by other SAS institutes, all you need to do is choose and just watch "from the comfort of your sofa".
