The second edition of Science in the Citadel, to be held on April 28, was launched by Gozo Minister Justyne Caruana. Dr Caruana said the event, targeted at the whole family, was very important, since it introduced children to the world of science from an early age.

“With today’s technological advancements we need to be prepared and festivals like these bring us close to the technological and scientific world, also exposing Gozo’s potential,” Dr Caruana said.

Colleen Bower, the festival organiser, gave details about the exhibits featured on the day, including agricultural and marine sciences, artificial intelligence and digital games.

The festival, taking place in all areas around the Citadel, will be held between 10am and 8pm.
