Famous scientists such as Leonardo da Vinci, Dmitri Mendeléiev and the team that put mankind on the Moon left a legacy we are still benefitting from today. Knowledge is a great big building in which the bricks of the past lay the foundations to construct the present and pose future challenges. Nanotechnology, big data, supercomputing, genetic editing and new materials are the result of centuries of accumulated knowledge. Many different activities reveal this to an adult audience in the form of brief talks, debates and—new this year—workshops and demonstrations. Formats that highlight the main challenges and controversies in modern-day science.
