Researchers' Night 2021 at the Silesian University of Technology

What do MINECRAFT, a snowman and an earthworm have in common, can air conduct electricity, how can we measure the world around us, how does a building behave during an earthquake and can we see sound - these and many other questions were answered by researchers from the Silesian University of Technology. The Reserchers' Night  2021 was held at the University.

The Researchers' Night started on Saturday, 9th of October at 3PM with the official inauguration with the participation of, among others, the Rector of the Silesian University of Technology, Prof. Arkadiusz Mężyk, the Vice Rector for Infrastructure and Promotion, Prof. Tomasz Trawiński and the Director of the Science Popularisation Centre, Prof. Aleksandra Ziembińska-Buczyńska.

“Science is not only useful, but also interesting. By organising Researchers' Night, we want to encourage everyone to have fun with science and make a virtue of necessity. Science means making dreams come true, it means thinking about the future. We want the youngest participants of our workshops, encouraged by the presentations and exercises, to take up studies at Silesian University of Technology or any other university in the future and join the group of creators of the future” said the Rector of the Silesian University of Technology, Professor Arkadiusz Mężyk.

“For the 16th time, driven by passion, we encourage you to discover the secrets of science. Please use this unique opportunity to ask questions, above all, in the field of technology. I wish you an amazing experience this evening” said, during the opening of the Researchers' Night, the Vice Rector for Infrastructure and Promotion, Prof. Tomasz Trawiński.

“We want to open scientific doors which seem to be very hard to open. Science seems to be hidden in laboratories, but we want to open them and invite both the young and the elderly to experiment together” says Prof. Aleksandra Ziembińska-Buczyńska.

During the opening ceremony, diplomas and prizes were also awarded to the winners of competitions held as part of the 16th edition of the Researchers' Night of the Silesian University of Technology.

This year's edition was held in a blended formula. Participants could take part in workshops and experiments stationary as well as visit virtual laboratories and participate in online demonstrations. The organizer of the Researchers' Night is the Silesian University of Technology and partners are the Upper Silesian and Zagłębie Metropolis  (Metropolis GZM) and the City of Gliwice.
