Together with the BxLUG, Ubuntu-be is invited to be present at the Wetenschap-ExpoSciences days organized by Jeunesses Scientifiques) in Brussels, Heyzel. Please ask questions about this activity to the ubuntu-be.org mailing list.

This is a bilingual (French and Flemish) fair where students, from 6 to 18, are proposed to present scientific projects they have prepared during the year, usually in their schools with the help of their science teachers. As of March 3, 2007, more than 1300 students representing more than 250 had registered.
