Open Day & Researchers' Night

The Institute spares no effort at the popularization of physics among wide society and particularly among young people. Making science attractive to young people at primary and secondary schools is an important item on our agenda.

Every two years the Institute organizes Open Day Event mainly addressed to high school students and pupils. The latest event took place in September 2008. More than 800 students and teachers visited us on that day. The session of 5 popular lectures on current topics in physics ware given. Oxford Debate of two high school teams on pros and cons of nuclear power plants evoked spontaneous engagement of students. Opened access to 27 research laboratories enabled to present our work and scientific equipment. The presentations were accompanied by a number of thematic exhibits, posters and films.

The Institute may be visited not only on the Open Day. 59 groups (1678 persons) pupils, students and teachers were accepted in different laboratories during 2007 and 2008. Usually one group has visited 4-5 labs.
