Researchers' Night, one of the largest pan-European projects approaching science and scientific issues to the general public, will take place on September 26 from 18.00 to 23.00. The event will involve a number of leading organizations – universities, research institutes, research institutes and observatories. One of the partners and organizers of the event's Mendel University in Brno (Mendel), which for those interested in science prepared a rich program on campus at Cerna Pole. „Researchers' Night is an annual meeting of the public with science and scientists, it is a program that at hundreds of sites across the European Union shows a particularly fascinating world of science and engineering phenomena,“ explains Ing. Catherine L. Brettschneiderová from the PR department MENDELU. At all locations in one evening a popular form of presenting science and especially its bearers – scientists, inventors, engineers and science communicators.
Health ** in our kitchen **
Important role in people's lives today are increasingly playing quality foods that utilizes in her kitchen. Experts from the Horticultural Faculty Mendel focus on vegetable food sources, including also vegetables or medicinal plants and spices. Test not only their quality and content representation of selected substances, but they are also expanding their biodiversity and genetic resources. Come and taste your health!
** Life under the water surface **
Life under the water is incredibly rich and varied, so do not hesitate to refer to the plant and animal kingdom! Visitors will be able in a building on the premises of M Department of Fisheries and Hydrobiology insight into the laboratory, where she meets with representatives of the plants and animals living in the water. There will also prepared samples of organisms that normally can not see with the naked eye. In other areas of the building can become acquainted with the usual representatives of freshwater fish, with which occur in our rivers and lakes. In addition, they learn what path must offend fish from the pond to the plate, and while you can try to catch fish. The little ones can learn in life's journey carp Boris. See you enjoying your guides water world.
** Radioecology in science, study and practice **
Introducing radioekologických and radiobiological disciplines taught at the AF MENDELU and present major results of research carried out by the host department (department Radiobiology Institute of Molecular Biology and Radiobiology) and involving Radioecological issues.
** Discover your cell science too! **
The most famous theme of the event for 2014 cells. Therefore, in the workplace Institute of Chemistry and Biochemistry prepared five thematic areas: one circuit with basic chemical experiments, three tours (research laboratories, devices, and technologies), and one circuit for kids (s popularly chemical and biological themes).
** Do you know what you eat? **
At night full of mysteries scientists, try the flavors of teas. Tea will be pleased to pour, securing him with oil and who passes the test, it fills with pesto. Who has a sense of humor, understand and distillation. Pest take with humor, talk to your doctor, it is he who heals flowers, plants testifies to great.
** Color of wheat **
Color wheat are those which, in their natural forms caryopsis dyes, especially anthocyans and karoteinoidy. This is not about genetic modification and no artificial colors. Substances which have health benefits for the consumer (eg. From cardiovascular disease, cancer, etc.). Get theoretical information and practical experience, where dyes are stored (using a microscope) and you'll possibility of tasting pastries from the color of wheat.
** Plants of the tube **
You will see how it is possible to breeding and raising plants (trees) using tissue culture techniques. How can one part of the plant to get a few dozen tree if not the entire forest.
** Food under the microscope **
In the lobby on a yellow floor visitors can test their senses and in the dairy pilot plant you can play on the milkman. At 19:00, 20:00, 21:00, 22:00, and 23:00, then there will be tours led by instructor pilot plant for the Institute of Food Technology.
** ** Robotics
IT specialists will demonstrate to visitors in the building Q, as one of the most popular toys (Lego) can be transformed using a suitable program in a functional robot that can move in space and recognize different objects. Visit Robotic Laboratory of Intelligent Systems is also supplemented by thematic examples from the field of robotics and handling equipment (eg. The robotic arm playing chess).
** ** Virtual Reality
For those interested in building Q will be accessible virtual reality lab, which is used for modeling objects in 3D space (for example, when modeling the landscape in the context of the changing housing estate). Part of the demonstration will also work with augmented reality (ie. Augmented reality).
** ** Laboratory Network
Last laboratories, which will be in a university building accessible Q is called. Network laboratory, where visitors can learn about the functioning of the integrated network technologies. In practice, they can watch demonstrations of ensuring the quality of multimedia services (Video on Demand, VoIP call) on a typical home Internet connection.
** ** Rolling laboratory
In the laboratory, driving in two factory-installed model lines, one in H0 scale and the second TT scale. Both tracks are computer – a computer can perform tasks dispatcher (toss turnouts and track the movement of the train) and driver (driving control locomotives). Will specimens of electronics that controls the track, it will be possible to try and ride control lines with trains ready.
** The mysterious world of plant reproduction **
Did you know that you can also learn about plants by seeds? Come and see the magnified plant seeds – you will be enthralled by their beauty.
** Virtual mining in the forest **
Try the logging harvester in a virtual forest.
Admission to all events is free in all locations. National Coordinator Researchers' Night for the Czech Republic is the sixth time in Pilsen Science Center Techmania. The event was in 2013 under the auspices of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic and the European Commission Representation in the Czech Republic.
