The theme for this year’s Science in the City, held in Valletta on Friday, 27th September, 2019, was “The Science of You”. The Department of Geosciences from University of Malta was present at this festival of science in the section called “Making Waves”, next to the picturesque Triton Fountain.

The event provided an excellent opportunity for the Physical Oceanography Research Group to showcase the various research activities that it is involved in, to the general public. CALYPSO South and KAPTAN both featured prominently, as the Research Group team explained, to the people who visited the stand, how the products resulting from CALYPSO South can be used in their daily lives to help them make informed decisions in marine related issues.

The stand attracted visitors covering a wide range of ages – from 3 to 80 – all eager to learn more about the sea around us. They had the opportunity to play games, try out simple experiments and discuss various issues related to the sea.
