Info for school classes and groups

Around 50 activities (workshops and shows) await school classes at the Science Festival.
There should be something for everyone!


Curious people can already take a look at the 2023 program. Don’t hesitate to note down your 1-4 favourite activities so that you will be ready on 20 September when the registration period starts.


Discovered all activities at a glance on the plan.

Target group

Primary school: Cycles 3.2, 4.1 and 4.2

Secondary school: 7e, 6e, 5e

Other information

Groups of more than 20 students should be divided into sub-groups to allow for a more interactive exchange with the students, but also to avoid overcrowding in the workshops.


Niessen sells snacks and Picnic areas are available on the site.


Registrations are open and can only be made via this form. They will close on 12 October 2023.


If your class is to be divided into sub-groups, a form must be completed for each sub-group. Each sub-group must be accompanied by an adult.


More than 300 applications have already been received. The chances of being booked in the morning are diminishing sharply. On the other hand, they are still quite high on Thursday and Wednesday afternoons.
