2014 Researchers Night: European science celebration in Bucharest

On September 26, 17:00 in Bucharest, Tineretului Park, the Sincai entrance the journey into the world of science for the 2014 Researchers Night begins. All travellers are invited to take their seat of choice and cover an itinerary full of adventure into the world of true researchers. This year’s edition challenges all visitors to become travellers into the world of science, in all four main areas of the event. The 2014 Researchers Night will be organised in Bucharest and 14 other cities: Arad, Bacau, Brasov, Cluj-Napoca, Constanta, Craiova, Galati, Iasi, Oradea, Piatra Neamt, Sibiu, Suceava, Târgu Jiu, Timisoara.
The curious, researchers, children or all ages can check the programme of the event on http://noapteacercetatorilor.eu/orase/bucuresti/ or www.facebook.com/NoapteaCercetatorilor.
In the Hands On area, independent researchers and research institutes show and demonstrate how their experiments and research work are going. Among the research institutes present to the event there are the National Research and Development Institute for Physics of Lasers, Plasma and Radiations, the Atomic Physics Institute, the Space Sciences Institute, the ‘Horia Hulubei’ National Research and Development Institute for Physics and Nuclear Engineering, the Geological Institute of Romania,  the Faculty of Physics and many other guests.
Physics workshops, experiments, microscope or telescope observations, mental control demonstrations, 2D and 3D viewings, virtual journeys through the solar system, making mini-comets, robotics and invention demonstrations – they will all present the latest discoveries and inventions, but also the most interesting scientific concepts and the audience can ask researchers about how every single thing works. As the name says, it is the area where the participants may touch the exhibits, contribute to experiments and interact with the researchers.
In the area dedicated to research in the European Union, the participants will find out about the latest trends in European research, will be able to test their general knowledge and participate in a European raffle.
This year’s edition of the Researchers Night proposes two distinct approaches dictated by the two organising teams: the approach of science, seen with regard to its impact it has on everyday life and the approach of science that unites people across language or geographic borders and exposes itself in an accessible language.
