First year of "Molecular Physics Kindergarten"

Przedszkole Fizyki Molekularnej

"Molecular Physics Kindergarten" is a new offer of IMP PAS addressed to high school students. The goal of "Kindergarten" is to familiarize young people with current scientific issues and their participation in research carried at the Institute.

The first year 2019/2020 lectures were attended by students of three high schools: Zespół Szkół Nr 1 im. Powstańców Wielkopolskich in Swarzędz, XXXVIII Dwujęzyczne Liceum Ogólnokształcące im. Jana Nowaka-Jeziorańskiego in Poznań and Liceum Ogólnokształcące Św. Marii Magdaleny in Poznań.

We invite schools and young physics enthusiasts to cooperate with us in the next school year. Details will be available soon on our website.

European Commission

Our Institute has become an official partner and co-organizer of the European Researchers' Night in Poznań, and the beneficiary of the project H2020-MSCA-NIGHT-2020 "Scientists from various fields teach us how to care for the planet on a daily basis. Nightforearth" (The European Researchers' Night), Horizon 2020 (EU). The application for financing of this year's event received the maximum number of points from the European Commission. The project coordinator on the part of the Institute of Molecular Physics PAS is dr inż. Dorota Dardas.

The European Researchers' Night at the Institute of Molecular Physics PAS has been organized for two years. Until now, it took place in the form of the event "In the labyrinth of physics", which accompanied the Europe-wide celebration of the Researchers' Night.

Due to the current epidemic situation, the event date has been moved to November 27th, 2020, and the program and organization of the event will be adapted to changing conditions on an ongoing basis.
