7 thematic zones and more than 1,000 demonstrations. We know the details of the 23. Science Picnic
From microprocessors to rockets. From simple levers to supercomputers. The progress of science allows us to build more and more perfect mechanisms to make more discoveries. At 23. Science Picnic we will check what connects people and machines. We invite you on May 11 this. At the PGE Narodowy at. 11.00 – 20.00. We are already revealing a virtual map of the event and the highlights of the 7 thematic zones introduced for the first time, which will feature nearly 1,000 shows. Free admission to all.
Science Picnic, ktory this year will be held under the motto „We and Machines", is Europe’s largest popular science outdoor event. It is intended for all whoowho are curious about the world – regardless of the already acquired knowledge and regardless of age. This year, for the first time, the Picnic space has been divided into 7 thematic zones. This will allow visitors to easilyob find the shows that interest them most, while exhibitors benefit from their readability. This is important because on that day the showoThere will be almost 1,000 exhibits, prepared by more than 200 exhibitorsofrom Poland and abroad.
Here you will find inventions, technologies and research, ktore changing our daily lives. Robot worldow will cease to be so mysterious and will even turn out to be funny after meeting the friendly MelSon, a humanoid whoory runs brilliantly, practices sumo, can imitate human movements. They will surprise the applications of 3D printing – is already being used to print. organow. The youngest will be able to create trojdimensional drawings with a special pen. It will amaze PAKS, a car constructed by a studentow, whichore can drive more than 300 km on a liter of fuel. It will be possible to test the capabilities of the Selfie autonomous car. It uses machine vision, lidar and other sensorsow, thanks to whichorym can drive without a driver. The experience will be a walk on a folding footbridge – such a mobile bridge many of us happened to dream about while walking along the busiest arteries. And here it is!
In this zone you will be able to see how scientific discoveries are changing the face of medicine.

This kropreschoolerow and studentsoIn the younger grades szkoł basic, on whichoMany activities await to stimulate cognitive curiosity. The youngest will take part in art and construction activities, plant their own tree and enjoy a board and outdoor game rental. They will meet dinosaurs – big, but not too scary. Children will see the real teeth and claws of these extinct predatorsow. 3D modeling is used for paleontological research and reconstruction. With the help of this technology you will also be able to create a virtual model of yourself: all you need is a moment of patience, specialized equipment that takes 40 photographs at a time and a computer program. The youngest are usually interested in the work of a firefighterow – in the Family Zone they will talk to them and see a simulated fire. Children will also learn about fairy-tale machines – a storytelling machine, a compliment machineow and good słow, a rainbow making machine and a sympathy detector.
Zone "Zrob To Sam"
