The Fifth Science Fair at Lviv Polytechnic was particularly vivid and multifaceted. It was Friday, wonderful warm weather and visitors who wished to see and hear as much as possible, and where it is possible to try and experiment. And there was really lots of things to see. After all, each Institute of our University has unique developments, which you will not find in other Lviv universities.
The event started with quite a serious topic – «Changing the role of university in modern society». This roundtable discussion gathered academics, teachers from different education institutions, as well as guests from abroad.
