"Discovery 09 is the fourth ""party night with food for thought"" in Amsterdam organised by the Very Disco Foundation. On 25 September 2009 from 22:00pm-04:00am, the well-known Science Center NEMO will be filled with 1500-2000 young people who enjoy fascinating science, new music, the latest technologies, stimulating art and bright ideas. This is specifically brought to them by members of their own generation in a fresh trendsetting party atmosphere.The general aim of Discovery is to repeatedly show young, passionate and enthusiastic scientist to the public. This display of scientists, especially in a festival and night-time context that the general audience can relate to, helps to create a new and more positive image of the scientist in general, and of young scientists in particular.Discovery 09 will show young scientists to the public. Not only to the visitors of the Researchers' Night itself but, more importantly, to a broad audience through national media attention and awareness campaigns. While around 1500-2000 people will be present at the Researcher's Night itself, a multiple of that number will see, hear or read about young scientists organising a trendy and unique party night.The festivities during the night itself will be a mix combining cutting edge science, public performances by both young and well-known scientists speaking about their passions, an artistic program, and nightlife activities with popular DJ’s, bands, VJ’s and multiple stages."
