Ars Electronica Lisbon Garden will take us on a virtual tour of the Pavilion of Knowledge exhibits. Rui Agostinho, together with Ana Noronha, will co-host a live virtual presentation, answering questions and explaining how we can know the chemical composition of stars from their light. Ars Electronica Garden Lisbon will link to Ars Electronica spaceEU for the launch of spaceEU Toolkit, a ready-to-use digital collection of space-centered activities. Both gardens will host the world-famous Sarah Petkus’s Noodle.
Pavilion of Knowledge Garden
Located in Lisbon, by the Tagus River, „Pavilion of Knowledge – Centro Ciência Viva“ is an interactive science and technology museum. Since we first opened doors in 1999, we aim to inspire and mobilize those who visit us by exploring the world through science and technology. In addition to offering exciting, high-quality exhibitions in a wide variety of topics, we develop professional programs for educators and educational activities that spark curiosity, creativity and critical thinking among our visitors, develop their foundational skills and contribute towards the empowerment of citizenship based on scientific knowledge.
Ars Electronica Garden Lisbon will take us on a virtual tour of the „Pavilion of Knowledge“ exhibits. Rui Agostinho, professor in the University of Lisbon’s Department of Science, will explain how we can deduce the chemical composition of stars from their light. Together with Ana Noronha, he will co-host a live virtual presentation at the „Ars Electronica Lisbon Garden“, sparking curiosity and answering questions about the information hidden in starlight. Ars Electronica Garden Lisbon with also welcome Sarah Petkus’s „Noodle Feet“, which will build the bridge to the spaceEU Garden.
The spaceEU Toolkit, a ready-to-use digital collection of space-centered activities and one outcome of the European Union funded astronomy education project spaceEU, will be launched simultaneously at spaceEU Garden and at Ars Electronica Lisbon Garden.
spaceEU is an EU project for space outreach and education activities. In order to make these activities available to a wide audience, we collected all our expertise in a toolkit. Find out about how to use it and discover how space becomes a source for inspiration
Sarah Petku’s Robot called Noodle Feet is visiting the Pavilion of Knowledge. Join and find out how the Pavilion of Knowledge looks like.
