BEIJING, Sept. 19 (Xinhua) — The 16th National Science Popularization Day kicked off on Saturday.

Exhibitions at the China Science and Technology Museum will focus on sci-tech innovation, public health, and achievements in fighting the COVID-19 epidemic with science and technology.

A series of science popularizing events on popular science reading, health, public safety, and water conservation will be held nationwide from Sept. 19 to 25.

An online platform (https://www.kepuri.org/) is expected to be at the frontline of this year’s events. The public can watch live broadcasts and science videos on the platform, as well as remotely participate in knowledge contests and other activities held across the country.
