Or try your hand at solving a murder mystery in Porto. Science is a scream – and the public in Poznan have tried to prove it by trying to break a sound record with the loudest collective shriek.
These are just some of events that took place in 33 EU and neighbouring countries in 300 cities as part of Researchers' Night held on the 27the September. From Ireland to Israel, researchers will be sharing their passion for science with the public in 300 cities. Last year, Researchers' Night attracted more than one million visitors, including 600 000 children. The aim is to discover science in a fun way and promote research as a career. The public was able to take part in experiments and interactive science shows, as well as try out equipment in research laboratories that are normally restricted.
Malta too organised a ‘Science in the City’ activity with documentaries, educational activities, quizzes, demonstrations, plays and dancing in St. George’s Square, Valletta.
Researchers' Night is supported by the EU's Marie Curie Actions.
