At each station, the students, carry out experiments before the audience and explain how they work in an accessible way. There is plenty of entertainment and trivia for the visitors related to the world of science and new technologies.

The exhibition at the Faculty of Physics, Warsaw University of Technology is open daily from 9:00 – 16:00 and will last until March 23. On weekdays, will be available to secondary schools and in the weekend for a wide audience. Registrations are accepted by schools form at the website
