Chat with researchers
Start date: May 1, 2009,
End date: Oct 31, 2009
A great dose of humour, comments made by well-known and well-liked scientists, bold experiments carried out hand in hand with scholars, answers to all the questions which have bothered humankind for ages: can a man fly? Is a human voice able to break glass? What affects the size of the Moon? Apart from that, activities loved by everyone: workshops, demonstrations, lectures, tours to places usually closed to ‘ordinary people in the street’! There are more attractions of this incredible night – The Silesian Researchers’ Night – which for the first time would embrace the whole Silesian community and prove that science and scientists are not boring at all! The programme of this extraordinary event will be exciting and diverse, in order to satisfy even the most discriminating visitors. Great figures of science will be invited to participate, scientists, specialists in the arts and economists. During this Night they will be real actors and give a unique interactive performance for, and with the help of, the whole Silesian community. For only this Night the University will not separate serious professors from the rest of the world. The researchers, usually solemn, are going to show their real faces; they will convince even the greatest doubters that apart form science, they have incredible passions and they are eager and able to talk about them. The success of the Silesian Researchers’ Night is sure, as three important research centres in Southern Poland have combined their forces. The Silesian University of Technology will back up the event with its broad experience, scientific and research bases, extensive contacts with the industry; the University of Economics and the University of Silesia will be a rich source of marvellous ideas, and their authority will certainly attract the media and great numbers of visitors. The Night will show that a Friday night spent together with the scientists can offer an attractive alternative to popular ways of spending your time off.
