Physics Day will be organized again in Szeged, and the ELI ALPS Laser Research Institute will host the programs on Saturday, February 3 – Szeged University Public Relations Directorate informed MTI.
The aim of this event, which has been organized every year since 2006, is to promote the beauty and interest of physics among students. The colorful array of programs can be particularly interesting for high school students who are considering choosing a major in physics or another discipline in the natural sciences, as the event offers insight into both scientific and industrial applications of physics, which are presented on site by Szeged's physicists. Format of lectures, exhibitions and guided visits.
Shows start at nine in the morning. Academician Gábor Szabó, Director of the Research Institute, after the opening, Scientific Director Katalin Varjo talks about the secrets of attosecond physics. The discoveries made in the field of science won the Nobel Prize in Physics last year, and this will also be discussed during the presentation. Gabor Paraje introduces interested parties to computational modeling of molecules, and in a sample of a university class taught by Attila Czerjak and organized around the topic of quantum physics, participants can experience what it is like to be a student in Szeged. The module class is particularly recommended for students who are more seriously interested in physics and who are considering choosing a major in physics or physics engineering.
Guided visits are available for young people interested in natural sciences – advance registration required: Guests can take a look behind the scenes at ELI ALPS, learn about the operation of a motorcycle brake seat, and in the interactive visitor space Fókusz, they can try out physics-related gadgets, games and curiosities.
At the exhibition stands, participants can learn about the work of researchers at the SZTE Institute of Physics, the research conducted at ELI ALPS and career opportunities for physicists at ELI ALPS, as well as the possibilities of industrial applications of physics, and can obtain detailed information about training courses at the SZTE Institute of Physics.
In the afternoon of the program, the results of the Ágoston Budó Physics Problem Solving Competition are announced, in which Ferenc Ignácz will also present amazing experiments.
