Would you like to learn first-hand about research and researchers? Did you ever think about becoming a researcher? Watch the video and get a taste of the Science is Wonder-ful event.
On the 23 September in Brussels, the 10th Anniversary of the European Researchers' Night celebrated science in the EU with an event open for all.
For 10 years, the European Researchers' Night has brought science to the masses with events across Europe.
The Night events present projects from Marie Skłodowska-Curie researchers in order to get people, especially young people, interested and engaged in science and research.
Live experiments, face-to-face chats with current researchers, quick-fire 3-minute presentations of projects from the people involved and an exhibition of the top inventions and discoveries given life thanks to EU support were just some of what was on offer at the anniversary event.
"Months of hard work for one night, worth it when you see the ecstatic look on a child's face as they watch an experiment."
"A wonderful journey from a relatively small scale event to a huge umbrella event linking up all corners of Estonia. New and exciting activities are added every year. We show that research can change the world."
"A splendid initiative, a great opportunity to interact with people in an atmosphere of enthusiasm and sharing."
"The power to change public opinion about science and scientists, showing their work in an amazing and accessible way, attracting young people to science careers."
"A unique opportunity to showcase my "Face Reader"( basic and applied research on emotional responses, using our advanced facial coding system), in a relaxed atmosphere with some interesting experiments. See you this year!"
"A great opportunity for researchers to present their work and to communicate with the general public. For the public a chance to touch, feel and smell science!
A tremendous team experience during which all have to speak the same language and support each other. And immense joy when a child, after having asked a million questions, says to you "these little animals are my friends now, I had so much fun!"
