The Earth, a system called. How did it form? How did it evolve? Where is it going? The answers to these questions are in the exhibition of Centro Ciência Viva de Estremoz, which can be visited for hours or minutes. Understanding the Earth is first and foremost understanding how it was formed and its relationship with the Universe. Then... it_s just a matter of understanding where the energy of our planet comes from and how it works. An impossible task because of its vastness? Perhaps not! Are you ready to pilot a submarine? Do you want to see what happens to a ping-pong ball __diving´´ 2000 meters deep? With Rovin dos Mares at your command, participate in a journey that will take you to dive into an ocean 500 million years old, returning to the present day in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean of the 21st century. If science is now produced mainly in universities and research laboratories, there were times when convents emerged not only as places of worship, but also as temples of knowledge. Inaugurated on May 27, 2005, Centro Ciência Viva de Estremoz occupies an important part of the Convent of Maltezas and is also one of the poles of the University of Évora. A solar system on the scale of the municipality of Estremoz, a four-meter-high volcano, and a scale replica of a T-Rex are some of the most emblematic modules of this Center, which is a reference in the dissemination of science in Alto Alentejo.
