The only one of its kind – the Pomeranian Researchers Night!

Are we in danger of widespread feminisation due to endocrinally active compounds? What are Platonic solids, and how do you make them using origami? How do you write hieroglyphs? What is a Baghdad battery? Does fruit have voltage? What does blood look like under a microscope, and can you paint a picture using cyanobacteria? These and many other questions will be answered by scientists during the first Pomeranian Researchers Night, which will take place on September 29, 2023, in the Tricity area.

Dozens of proposals, including scientific demonstrations, visits to laboratories, workshops, and lectures. There will be interactive events as well as quizzes and competitions with prizes. On this one and only night of the year, scientists will leave their daily routines and research, go out to the public and open their workplaces to a broad audience to show that science is interesting, exciting and, above all, accessible to everyone.

The Pomeranian Researchers Night will be unique in every respect. Mysterious laboratories will reveal their secrets, and non-trivial questions will be answered. The events of the night are planned in such a way as to arouse in the participants, especially in children and young people, a hunger for knowledge, analytical thinking, a desire to learn about the world, draw conclusions and continuously stimulate the imagination. In addition to popularising science in its broadest sense, a number of preventive actions are also planned.

The event in the Pomeranian region is coordinated by the Medical University of Gdańsk, and its partners are the Pomeranian universities: the University of Gdańsk, Gdansk University of Technology, Gdynia Maritime University, Naval Academy and two centres for the popularisation of science: Experiment Science Centre and Hevelianum. The project was co-financed from the state budget funds granted by the Minister of Education and Science in the framework of the Social Responsibility of Science II programme.
