CREATIVE ART GAMES / OTTO WICHTERLE

Do not miss our next art workshop! Along with Lucie Haškovcová from the City Gallery of Prague, you can meet Jiří Mládek, collector of MERKUR kits and animator Zuzana Bahulová!

Only few Czech scientists have enjoyed such renown and popularity, both at home and abroad, like Professor Otto Wichterle. He is best known for his invention of the contact lens. His unusual story and unbelievable contributions to science are great inspirations and remain the subject of well-deserved attention.

This year, we commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of his invention of the soft, water-permeable contact lens, and, in 2013, what would have been the Professor’s 100th birthday. The Czech Centre decided to use these two anniversaries to create an exhibition that will celebrate and teach about his life, his contributions, and his significance, not only to the world of science, but to everyday, practical life. The exhibition was prepared in cooperation with the Institute of Macromolecular Chemistry of the Academy of Sciences of the Czech Republic. After the Prague exhibition, it will be featured at Czech Centres abroad.

All age groups are welcome. Czech language is not required!
