After a break of 2 years due to covid pandemic, the 5th edition of « Science Me! » took place on 9-10 July, 2022, in the lovely and romantic park of the Perle-du-Lac, Geneva, Switzerland, during the traditional Nuit de la Science science fair organised every even year; the event was once again heavily attended, attracting a rough 25-35’000 visitors.
The competition welcomed 16 teams from all over Europe and even further afield (1×Switzerland, late cancellation; 3×Czech Republic; 2×Poland; 2×Denmark; 1×Estonia; 1×Finland; 1×Netherlands; 1×Hungary; 1×France; 1×Bulgary; 1×Ukraine; 1×Morocco) and attracted a total of 2330 spectators under its theater tent (last edition in Geneva: 1400 spectators. The success of the preceeding editions of « Science Me! » contributed to the durability of the event, which became the annual Geneva Must-Be for all young researchers wishing to get acquainted with science communication.
