As Anton Pavlovich Chekhov stated: "Science is the most important, the most beautiful and necessary thing in a person's life, it has always been and will be the highest manifestation of love, only by it alone will a person conquer nature and himself."
The Science Festival helps to find answers, explore, and discover this world, and is designed for the widest audience. The purpose of the event is to tell society in a clear and accessible language what science is, what scientists do, how scientific search improves the quality of life, what prospects it opens up to modern man. This is an introduction to the achievements of science, first-hand information about what is happening at the forefront of research. And, of course, in 2021, the main theme of the All-Russian NAUKA 0+ Science Festival was the Year of Science and Technology held in the Russian Federation this year.
