The next edition of the Science Picnic will take place on Saturday, 27 May 27, 2023, at PGE Narodowy in Warsaw. Scientific revolutions are the theme of the event.
At the stand of the Institute of Plasma Physics and Laser Microfusion, researchers will explain nuclear fusion in a simple and vivid way using a device called a fuzor. Participants, under the supervision of the instructor, will be able, among other things, to adjust the parameters in the device (e.g. pressure, voltage of the electrodes) affecting the generated plasma. The next demonstration will enable you to learn how to explore the world with light – IPPLM staff will explain the basic issues related to spectroscopic research. The third demonstration will deal with lasers. Participants will learn about the construction of a laser and the properties of laser light on the example of phenomena such as diffraction, interference and scattering.
The IPPLM stand will be located in the Future Zone, tent number A12.

The Science Picnic, organized by the Polish Radio and the Copernicus Science Centre, is Europe's largest outdoor science-themed event. Its aim is to disseminate knowledge from various scientific disciplines by presenting interesting experiments. The Picnic allows you to understand science, showing it as an extremely exciting and fascinating area of life, and by presenting the researcher’s methods and techniques, it encourages and inspires the participants of this event to undertake independent research activity.
