The final festival was in November 2000 in CERN, near Geneva, Switzerland. The other two festivals - "Physics on Stage 2" in 2000 and "Physics on Stage 3" in 2003 were situated in Nordwajik, Holland.
The decision of the International organizing committee is teachers of Biology and Chemistry to be included in the festival with a goal to strengthen the interes and to overcome the decrease of intereset among the young people in the natual sciences.

Host of the first festival "Science on Stage", conducted in Bulgaria in 2005, was the town of Pleven. The festival is accomplished by the combined efforts of a series of institutions and non-governmental organizations - Britain Council in Bulgaria, Ministry of Education and Science, Union of scientists, Union of the physicists in Bulgaria, National polytechnical museum, National museum "People and Earth", physic experts ... and most thanks to the renaissance efforts of the teachers of Physics and their students - our children, whose presentment inspire optimism.
