HA NOI  (VNS) — Children across the country will have the chance to learn about science, nature and technology through films and hands-on activities that will help them connect the concepts to their daily lives.

The Goethe Institute will screen 20 different educational movies from all over the world in more than 10 provinces.

The institute will hold the film festival in coordination with the Centre for Research Support and Development of Culture.

Games and hands-on experiments provided before or after the movies will help children connect science and technological innovation with the world around them.

"The science films are very significant for young people," said Nguyen Quynh Trang, a representative from the research support centre. "We hope the screenings with games and activities related to science will be welcomed by the young audiences in Viet Nam."

The institute will show the films in Ha Noi, Hai Phong and Vinh Phuc, and in central Da Nang, Hoi An and Quang Nam from October 24 to November 20.

In HCM City and the southern provinces of Dong Thap, Can Tho and Dac Lac, the screenings will be held from November 28 to December 15.

The Goethe Institute initiated the science film festival ten years ago in Asia. It has helped put on the festival in Viet Nam since 2011. For more information, visit the Goethe Institute website's events page. — VNS
