The program can be watched live on the Weekend of Science website. NEMO is free to visit all weekend (but book time in advance) and this also applies to the studio in Marineterrein. Here you will find the very interesting exhibit “Parts of You”, especially for adults, about the effects of the data you leave behind every day and how all this data affects your life.
Visit a site across the country
NEMO of course is not the only website where you can learn something about science and technology. Private sites across the country open their doors to the public during Science Weekend. Visit the world’s largest marine lock at IJmuiden or dive into GeoFort Science Lab. The Tax and Customs Museum takes you into the world of research and investigation. Throughout the week there is a special FIOD (Financial Intelligence and Investigation Service) bus, filled with listening devices and investigative resources. In the FIOD expo & escape room, everyone tests their research skills.
Fun activities at home
Everyone can also start with science and technology from home. The Weekend of Science website is filled with fun videos, experiments, and guided tours. Take a look in the operating room or see your DNA with very everyday household items. Anyone who wants to contribute to scientific research should take to the streets to look for sidewalk plants. These plants are certainly not weeds and are very important in keeping the city cool. Swipe over the plants growing on your doorstep and help out with the hunt!
