Please report your participation and activity via the form: https://www.polsl.pl/rjo7-cpn/ekspozycja-popularnonaukowa-w-bydgoszczy/ by October 8th.
Młyn-Maszyna is an interactive popular science exhibition with stations for self-experimentation. Full of multimedia and engaging stands, the exhibition will tell about physical phenomena and the laws of physics, the operation of equipment operating in mills and the production process - from grain to flour. The exhibition concerns the technical, architectural and industrial past of Bydgoszcz mills and the intangible heritage related to them.
One of the basic tasks of the exhibition is to familiarize users with physical phenomena and the laws of physics related to work and processes that take place in industrial mills on a daily basis. In the context of machines operating in mills, visitors will expand their knowledge of physics, mechanics and machine construction.
At the exhibition, visitors will find a description of production processes and an explanation of the operation of machines and devices operating in industrial mills in relation to knowledge in the field of physics, electrical engineering, chemistry, biology and mechanics, and will learn about the specific work of millers and craftsmen. The combination of difficult, physical work for people and other people, as well as references to the past, present and future, set in a specific place on Mill Island in Bydgoszcz, will not only stimulate visitors' curiosity about the world and make them identify more strongly with the city , but it will also encourage them to discover and understand the changes taking place around us.
