Researchers’ night is a Europe-wide event that offers the opportunity to visit research facilities that are usually not open to public (laboratories, research centers, museum collections). For one night, everyone can be a scientist!
The 2010 edition will be on 24 September. In Madrid 18 activities will take place in 13 venues between 18:00 and 24:00 hours. Keep in mind that some of them must be booked in advanced. Here you can see a list of planned activities:
- Science and scientists in the Royal Botanical Garden
- A night in the Moncloa Campus museums
- Magic and Science
- Electrical bacteria playing Handel’s music in the pond
- Pyrotechnics and chemistry: light, fire, colour and smoke
- Botanical Gardens: a haven for different species of vegetation in Europe
- Statistical Trivial Pursuit
- Scientific café: The machine against man. Myth or reality?
- Antonio Meucci: the cable of fate
- Physics, coffee and jazz: how they can be used to develop spatial optic instruments

- Why I am a scientist
- Are waves visible at night in Europe? The invisible and unsettling world of wireless communications

I think this is a great opportunity to have an insight on research professionals, their training, motivations, objectives… Very interesting!!!
So say we all!!
