Discover Forum des Sciences (Forum of Sciences) France

The aim that the 'Forum of Sciences' has set itself is to reconcile man with science.
Science is present at every moment of our lives, never ceasing to influence, improve or examine them. However, many people still view science as an area for specialists only.
Here, in a move away from science's boring reputation, its playful, fun side is emphasised. Touching, feeling and experimenting are all at the heart of a scientific approach that sets out to illustrate that curiosity and logic are, very often, the main tools of our knowledge.
With this in mind, by bringing science closer to other more popular disciplines, like the arts, the Forum helps visitors to see science from a different point of view. Instead of a daunting set of facts, it can be seen as a tool to enhance our understanding of the world.
Although the Forum's main aim is to bring man and science closer, it also deals with many questions arising from the huge impact that science has on our day-to-day lives. Conferences and discussions are organised with specialists in these various subject areas.
As well as the temporary exhibitions that tackle a number of themes (water, viruses, the functions of sleep, etc.), the Forum has a planetarium and a 3,767 sq ft space housing a documentation centre with multimedia content (including an introduction to Internet browsing).
What is more, as everyone knows a full brain will only function on a full stomach (it's been scientifically proven!), Café Bleu awaits with a selection of sandwiches, daily specials, salads, etc.
