Starting on 3 February, 2018, and during 5 consecutive Saturdays, the Faculty of Sciences of the UAB will host the XVIII Edition of the “Dissabtes de la Física” (Saturdays of Physics). An initiative of the Department of Physics, whose main objective is to bring physics and science to pre-university young students, and motivate them to know the world that surrounds us in a rigorous and, at the same time, comprehensible way.
The “Dissabtes de la Física” are presented, once again, in a format that has proved to be exciting: a lecture by one of the researchers and professors of the UAB Campus, followed by a series of experimental demonstrations, visits to different laboratories and/or visualization of informative videos about physics. The “Dissabtes” are aimed primarily at high school students who are interested in scientific issues, especially for physics, although teachers and relatives are also welcome.
Prof. Teresa Puig will give one of the lectures, on 24 February: “Materials superconductors: claus del repte energètic des de l’exotisme quàntic”. After the talk, the students will visit some of the installations at ICMAB and will see some demos carried out by SUMAN group.
Deadline for registration ends on 31 January 2018 (register here). The registration is free and is limited to the capacity of the Auditorium of the Faculty of Sciences.
We really like these initiatives, and we are happy to be able to be part of them!
