Cultural Season 2021/2022

Starting with Les Étincelles du Palais de la découverte, our temporary eco-friendly home located in the 15th arrondissement of Paris. The Palais has relocated to this colourful construction while renovation works are taking place, and we continue to carry out our mission here by offering presentations, workshops and shows at the planetarium.

As for the visitors of the Cité des sciences et de l'industrie, visitors will discover Jeans and Renaissances exhibits in person. The firm intention of these exhibits is to question the sustainability of our choices. E-LAB season 2 explores the latest trends in video games, in terms of the different careers and technologies within the industry, while the Biolab, a new demonstration area, sees the day. In June 2022, the Industrial Evolutions exhibition will open its doors. This exhibition explores industrialisation and its impact on human life, through immersive installations.

After the long months of lockdown, this cultural season focuses on the idea of sharing. This autumn, the Cité de sciences et de l'industrie puts the spotlight on a moment of celebration with Banquet, an exhibition that will bring visitors from the kitchen to the table. There will be also several events throughout the year: Les Silencieuses (Silent Events), Les Éclatantes (The Blinding Nights), Mini Maker Faire, and the Festicités festival will offer visitors experiences where they can enjoy being and doing something together.

In keeping with its mission, Universcience is aimed at everyone, from babies and toddlers onwards! After three years setting up its Lab, la Cité des bébés (Cité for babies) will open its doors to babies and toddlers in June 2022, while Fragile! (Fragile !) a new exhibition for children aged 2-6 will open in February 2022.

This cultural season will be all about togetherness and wonder. It's an opportunity for Universcience to show that in today's world, all roads lead to science.
