In the more than seven years of its existence, the project has been presented in different parts of the country from the Baltic Sea to the Far East: in Kaliningrad, Saint Petersburg, Krasnodar, Cheboksary, Ekaterinburg, Tomsk, Krasnoyarsk, Irkutsk, Angarsk, Severodvinsk, Khabarovsk, Vladivostok, Petrozavodsk, Yakutia, Saratov Oblast, Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug, and also at the All-Russian Children's Centers Orlyonok and Okean.

The interesting lecture themes, the outstanding scientists who answer questions, and the understandable presentation of the material—all this attracts people of different ages and professions to the events of the popular science festival in a format that is rare these days.

Since the beginning of the project, more than sixty thousand people have visited the events of Science Days Festivals.
