Preparation of EAGLE stand and active presentation of “Low temperature physics and precise time measurements” at XVIII Science Picnic of Polish Radio and the Copernicus Science Centre sponsored by the EAGLE Project, held at National Stadium Warsaw on May 31st, 2015
The Science Picnic of Polish Radio and the Copernicus Science Centre is Europe’s largest outdoor event aimed to promote science. Every year, it attracts crowds of visitors to Warszawa. Scientific institutions, universities, research institutes, museums, cultural institutions, and foundations related to science and science clubs present their achievements and reveal the behind-the-scenes aspects of their everyday work. They comprehensibly present science to audiences of various ages, with the aid of experiments, demonstrations and interactive exhibits.
Traditionally, our institute presents the stand “Low temperature physics” containing a number of spectacular demonstrations with liquid nitrogen. In 2014, the stand was supported by EAGLE and promoted the Project. Because this year the leading subject of the Picnic is “Time”, we have extended our presentation by precise time measurements.
The list of main presentations was as follows:
1. Mechanical properties of various bodies at cryogenic temperatures.
2. Measurements of very low temperatures (including: dry ice, liquid nitrogen and liquid helium).
