On Zientzia is a documentary-type audiovisual project which relies on citizen engagement and is organised by Elhuyar and DIPC within the framework of the TV show Teknopolis produced by Elhuyar for Basque public television.
The On Zientzia, competition aims to produce and disseminate short, original videos on science and technology, targeted at audiences of all ages. The competition has been running now for nine years and has generated a collection of over 500 popular science videos. During this year's Passion for Knowledge festival, a selection of some of the best videos will be screened in different local cultural and recreational centres.
The aim is to bring science and citizens together in unconventional places using unconventional formats (urban screens and cultural centres, for example). Collaborators include several cultural centres and film clubs in the province of Gipuzkoa.
