Znanost je zabavna: noč raziskovalcev 27. septembra v 300 mestih in 33 državah

Raziskovalci znajo početi precej navdušujoče stvari. Opazujte jih v Atenah, kako bodo v zrak dvignili premikajoči se model vlaka. Je vaše petje neubrano? Raziskovalci iz Düsseldorfa so našli rešitev in oblikovali virtualno napravo, s pomočjo katere se lahko spremenite v operno zvezdo, ki se lahko kosa s Placidom Domingom. V Zagrebu lahko odkrijete, ali je Odiseja 2001 Stanleya Kubricka res le znanstvena fantastika, v Portu pa lahko poskusite razvozlati skrivnostni umor. Raziskovalci v Santanderju bodo prikazali, kako fizika pomaga deskarjem ujeti največje valove, obiskovalci v mestu Perugia pa bodo spoznali lego robota Le(g)onarda, ki slika portrete. Znanost je lahko tudi zelo odmevna — in ljudje v Poznanu bodo to skušali dokazati, ko bodo z najglasnejšim skupinskim krikom poskusili preseči dosedanjo rekordno glasnost.

To so le nekateri enkratni dogodki, ki bodo v 33 državah članicah EU in sosednjih državah potekali v noči raziskovalcev 27. septembra. Od Irske do Izraela bodo raziskovalci z javnostjo delili svojo strast do znanosti. Lani je noč raziskovalcev pritegnila več kot milijon obiskovalcev, med njimi 600 000 otrok. Cilj dogodka je odkrivati znanost na zabaven način in spodbujati raziskovalne poklice. Javnost bo lahko sodelovala pri poskusih in interaktivnih znanstvenih predstavah ter preskušala opremo v raziskovalnih laboratorijih, do katerih je dostop po navadi omejen.

„Otroci so naravno radovedni in ustvarjalni, zato je noč raziskovalcev enkratna priložnost, da jim pokažemo, da je znanost privlačna. Kdo ve, morda lahko nekatere dekleta in fante spodbudi, da v prihodnosti postanejo odlični znanstveniki,“ je povedala Androulla Vassiliou, evropska komisarka za izobraževanje, kulturo, večjezičnost in mlade.

Noč raziskovalcev je podprl program Evropske unije za dejavnosti Marie Curie. Nekateri najzanimivejši dogodki so predstavljeni v prilogi, tiste blizu vas pa najdete na tej povezavi.

Ozadje

Noč raziskovalcev poteka vsako leto četrti petek v septembru po vsej Evropi. Dogodki se bodo odvijali v 25 državah članicah EU (razen v Avstriji, na Danskem in v Luksemburgu) ter v Bosni in Hercegovini, na Ferskih otokih, v Nekdanji jugoslovanski republiki Makedoniji, na Islandiji, v Izraelu, Črni gori, Srbiji in Turčiji.

Dogodek je iz leta v leto bolj razširjen: leta 2006 je sodelovalo 92 mest, letos pa že 300.

Noč raziskovalcev prejme 4 milijone evrov podpore na leto (skupni strošek znaša 7,5 milijona evrov) iz EU v okviru dejavnosti Marie Curie, ki spodbujajo mednarodne raziskovalne poklicne poti. Namen noči raziskovalcev je opozoriti na pomembno vlogo, ki jo imajo raziskovalne dejavnosti v našem vsakdanjem življenju, in na znanost kot poklicno možnost. Navduševanje mladih fantov in deklet za raziskovalne in znanstvene poklice je ključno za prihodnjo rast Evrope, ki je vedno bolj odvisna od inovativnih proizvodov in storitev.

Dogodki na noči raziskovalcev so izbrani s konkurenčnim postopkom po razpisu za zbiranje predlogov.

Skupni proračun za dejavnosti Marie Curie v obdobju 2007–2013 znaša 4,7 milijarde evrov, sredstva pa skoraj v celoti upravlja Izvajalska agencija Evropske komisije za raziskave. Program se bo v okviru pobude Obzorje 2020 preimenoval v dejavnosti Marie Skłodowska-Curie, ki je novi program EU za raziskave in inovacije. Noč raziskovalcev bo tudi v okviru novega programa prejemala podporo. Evropski parlament in države članice so se pred kratkim dogovorili, da bodo dejavnostim Marie Skłodowska-Curie namenili 8 % celotnega proračuna za program Obzorja 2020. Sklep naj bi bil uradno sprejet v prihodnjih tednih.

Priloga: Najzanimivejši dogodki

1. Athens and Volos (Greece)

Athens' Researchers' Night agenda includes experiments with explosive baking powder, rose petals that turn into breaking glass and magnetic fields able to lift a miniature 'bullet train' into the air and keep it in motion. In Volos, a team of mechanical engineers from the University of Thessaly will invite the public to sit in a race car they have just built.

2. Porto (Portugal)

Ready to make batteries powered by citrus fruit? Would you like your children to see what can be done with static electricity and straws? Do you want to learn how to build kites? The City Park of Paços de Ferreira will host a large number of workshops to which everyone is welcome. Would-be detectives can help researchers solve a 'murder' through hands-on experiments in the lab that will be key to shedding light on the perpetrator.

3. London (UK)

Would you like to join a live link-up with NASA scientists, try your hand at recreating cave art, or see Madagascan tenrecs, an endangered hedgehog-like mammal? The city’s iconic Natural History Museum will open its doors until midnight. The Museum’s collections will be also on show, including a Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton which is on public display for the first time in Europe.

4. Poznan (Poland)

The public will be invited to break a sound record with the loudest collective scream. Advice on fire protection and tips for would-be car mechanics are on the agenda too. There will be also workshops for kids, who will be able to see a graphical representation of their voice and scan their faces.

5. Göteborg (Sweden)

20 000 children across Sweden have been gathering tree leaves and photos for a scientific study on new weather and landscape patterns associated with climate change. The results will be revealed in Göteborg. Stories of fascinating expeditionary boat trips to the Arctic and other scientific adventures will feed the curiosity in an online chat.

6. Zagreb (Croatia)

Is Stanley Kubrick's Space Odyssey just science fiction? Or does it show, on the contrary, how scientific principles work in practice (e.g. there is no sound in the vacuum of space)? The Institute of Physics has organised a science fiction TV series seminar on the topic. A young local scientist from the Ruder Boskovic Institute will show a smoke launcher and how to fire giant shapes and vortex smoke rings.

7. Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Santander and Oviedo (Spain)

The Park of Santa Catalina in the Canary Islands will host workshops on solar energy and wind power. Meanwhile, in Santander, researchers and members of the public will discuss the scientific principles of surfing. It is all physics! Magnetism and energy is a theme for the night in Oviedo. Here the local events also offer an opportunity to discover how cell phones, computers and refrigerators work.

8. Perugia (Italy)

A group of sci-fi fans will catch a bus to Trasimeno Lake to conduct some unusual geological studies. The bus, guided by actors and researchers, will take the participants to a different time, thousands of years ago, and explore, on the basis of collected samples, how much the planet's climate has changed and is still to evolve. Those with a passion for art, games and robotics will have the opportunity to be photographed by a portrait-making Lego robot named 'Le(g)onardo'.

9. Düsseldorf (Germany)

In Dusseldorf, everybody is invited to burn off calories on a sustainable dance floor: the more enthusiastic the participants are, the more lighting and visual games the floor will generate. For a few seconds, they will also be able to become an opera singer. Visitors' lips and hands movements will be transferred to a virtual tenor on a big screen, setting the rhythm and volume of his performance. A modern 360° video projection will screen educational films on climate change. Acoustics and visuals promise to be spectacular! More than 80 activities are on the agenda.

10. Limassol (Cyprus)

The public will have a choice between 20 different activities in Limassol, ranging from molecular gastronomy, genetic analysis of chromosomes, to a presentation of ancient Greek musical instruments. Theatre will have a special place throughout the night: a physicist will present a stand-up comedy based on science facts and elementary school pupils will make a theatre performance. High school students will participate in a science communication competition S-Factor, while PhD students will make drawings of their PhDs and have them assessed by a jury.
