This year: the environment is me!
The topic this year is the environment. Discusses our role as individuals in our environment and our relationship with nature. Humans are more aware than ever of their impact and alternatives to changing the scenario that is taking place. Of course, science plays a huge role in understanding the situation and implementing solutions.
24 Hours of Science is an open door to exploring the world, discovering the universe, putting your nose at the center of science projects and even talking about innovation.
