During the holidays, science takes to the streets across the country with hundreds of free participation activities, organized by Ciência Viva centers, scientific institutions, independent foundations, companies and scientific societies.
Watching Alvilla’s most active night-dwellers, taking a mini microbial safari with a geothermal snack in the Azores, listening to the roar of deer in Braganca or prospecting for gold in Portas de Murao, in Proenca Nova, are some of the unmissable acts.

The International Space Station (ISS) meets the ‘Summer Triangle’
sunflower | July 15 – 9:30 PM
The idea of the activity is to observe the sunset, follow the path of the International Space Station to the “Summer Triangle”, and view images (taken by telescopes) of celestial bodies – nebulae and star clusters – in that region.
Tuna Road طريق
Santa Luzia – Al Rai Stones | July 16 and 30 | August 13 and 27 | Sep 10 Always at 5:00pm مساء
In the recent past, tuna fisheries in Portugal were regulated by Arraais, places where fishermen and their families lived while fishing. In this procedure, participants will visit Arraial dos 3 Irmãos. The goal will be to explore how the history and exploration of this resource has contributed to the development of the population that depends on it.
Microbian Mini Safari
Azores Microbial Observatory Science Center | July 27 11:00 am | July 29 – 12:00
Guided tour of the thermal springs of Furnas – a smoked field at Chã das Caldeiras. The goal is to identify in-field markers associated with thermophilic microbial communities, as well as to assess their ecological diversity and abiotic factors such as temperature and pH of different springs.
During this activity, participants will have the opportunity to prepare and enjoy a geothermal snack.
