Enjoy yourself with researching

Objective

A huge lot of humour, commentary by popular scientists, crazy experiments and answers to questions - can a man fly, can a human voice break glass, how to get rid of rubbish and what does the size of the moon depend on? Apart from that, there will be the public's favourite workshops, during which you can write a computer programme, create a multimedia game, trace a flying object or bake a pizza - and everything hand in hand with the researchers! There will also be many competitions in which the whole families can participate. The eyes of the visitors will see mysterious places, usually closed and unavailable. The authorities from the world of science will come down from their chairs for this one Night in a year, and, in extraordinary atmosphere, they will tell stories about their journeys, politics, latest scientific discoveries... All of this and some more will happen on this very night, the Researchers' Night! The stars of the evening will be our magnificent scientists. The actors, recipients, co-creators - all the inhabitants of our region, waiting impatiently for September! The fanclub of the Night is increasing in size. It is all due to the programme which gets more attractive every year and is based on the participants' suggestions. Having fun with the whole united Europe is a windfall for the inhabitants of Gliwice, and the idea of the European Commission ' To teach by playing ' is welcome with more and more enthusiasm. A rich and varied programme of the event is a guarantee of a great fun with the researchers who can 'infect' - especially young people - with their passion of discovery, but simultaneously they will reveal that love to science does not exclude dreams and hobbies beyond it. We can assure that the Night will give unforgettable impressions and will also be an excellent alternative to other forms of spending a Friday evening.
