Science Centre in Faro, Algarve, Portugal

I would like to know what do I need to do to include “Centro Ciência Viva do Algarve” () in the Rough Guide.

The Algarve Ciência Viva Centre (Centro Ciência Viva do Algarve) mission is to promote education for scientific knowledge, developing actions to stimulate interest in science and technology to the general public. The Algarve Ciência Viva Centre provides experiments about the physical phenomena that contributes to Earth evolution, nice aquariums with local fauna including a touch pool representing the nearby coastal lagoon Ria Formosa, a room dedicated to senses and another one dedicated to the phenomena of light. In the outside they have a greenhouse, a splendid terrace with a nice view over Ria Formosa and a garden dedicated to renewable energies. The team is young and helpful. We organize a lot of activities, including astronomy sessions, workshops, birthday parties for children, exhibitions among others.

For more information, please consult our web page, our Facebook or send us an email.

Best regards
