UCR Science Month 2022

August is Science Month at the University of Costa Rica!

The second edition of Science Month will be held in August, organised by the Promotion Unit of the Vice-Rectory at the University of Costa Rica.

The activities that will be carried out seek to show that science is within everyone's reach in day-to-day activities, and in this sense we will have activities for children, adolescents, society in general, and we will close with an activity aimed at our research community. In week II, UCR offers activities on the internationalisation of research, organised in conjunction with the Office of International Affairs (OAICE) of the UCR; in week III expert discussions about new infrastructures that the University has been developing and that will undoubtedly have an impact on improving the quality of life of our society.

Online events will also take place and be livestreamed on the Facebook page of UCR’s research unit (see here The main language of the activities is Spanish.

Throughout the month, UCR representatives will be visiting educational centres in different areas of the country, with researchers from the University with activities around the themes/questions:

  • Can you use milk to perform magic?
  • How does the brain work?
  • Steam: art, nature and robotics
  • A theatre play about atoms and molecules, based on the play The Little Prince
