The Polish Radio and Copernicus Science Centre Science Picnic has been held in Warsaw every year since 1997. It is Europe’s largest science event aimed at the promotion of science, during which scientific work is presented by research and development Institutions, science institutes, institutions of higher education, museums, science-related foundations and interest groups. They present science in a friendly way, accessible to all age groups, during hands-on, interactive experiments and exhibits.

In 2005, the Science Picnic was commended by the European Commission as one of 10 model European projects in the "Science and Society" field.

The Picnic is co-organized by the Polish Radio and Copernicus Science Centre since 2008.
