Three-day science and health conference in Mijas


MIJAS is playing host to its first Science and Health Conference, organised by Anteneo Mijas.

The event, which saw the organisation collaborate with the council, Fundacion Descubre and the company Fun Science, will take place on 2, 3 and 4 June, under the name “AteneoConCiencia.”

Fuensanta Lima, Councillor for Culture, commented, “once again the council is helping children learn about science through practical activities and conferences tailored for all.” She added the conference was the, “fruit of public initiatives and different organisations, and a great addition to the cultural programme already offered in the area.”

The event will include children exhibitions, workshops and informative conferences on science and health. In the Cortijo Don Elias, there will also be an exhibition entitled ‘Crystals of life’, which will explore the history of crystals and their influence on daily life.

Children will also enjoy workshops on microbiology and astrology, amongst others, which will be taught by Fun Science, a company specialising in interactive programs for children of all ages in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

The Director of Ateneo Mijas, Rocio Bautista, explained, “we have organised a three-day event… focused on adults and children, based mainly in Las Lagunas.”

Participants will also enjoy workshops on health and nutrition, with conferences on future medicine. Ms Limas commented, “the council want to encourage all families to participate in the event, which we are sure will not disappoint.”

Registration for the workshops is now open and can be done at
