Berlin Long Night of Science

Berlin Long Night of Science

Berlin Long Night of Science Attendees

The Berlin Long Night of Science takes place in June/July annually. On one night of the year, large scientific institutions hold lectures and demonstrations for the general public in order to present themselves and a general overview of their research topics. The events cover all aspects of science, from natural sciences to social sciences. The public can usually visit the institutions between around 5pm and 1am on the "Long Night of the Sciences".

Winners of the Berlin Long Night of Sciences Award at the SciFest National Final are selected, along with their teacher to attend this event. This is not a competitive event, but an experiential award. Its aim is to inspire and generate greater enthusiasm for STEM in both the attending students and teachers alike. The Berlin Long Night of Science Award is supported by the Department of Foreign Affairs. The Irish Embassy in Berlin kindly host and organise additional activities for the selected attendees each year.
