On 4 March at Nazarbayev University in Astana, we held the very first Astana Science Festival 2018 - an exciting and insightful event about science for kids and adults.

At the festival, visitors had the chance to:

  • see presentations by Kazakhstan’s schoolchildren and young researchers about interesting scientific discoveries and facts 
  • learn a lot of new things about the world of scientists and understand what motivates people to engage in science
  • take part in the Open Lab to check your knowledge of science
