The tenth edition of the Researchers’ Night, a yearly event taking place in over 300 cities throughout Europe, will be marked in Bucharest on September 25th. The event aims to make science themes more accessible and learning a fun process.

Other cities in Romania hosting a Researchers’ Night are: Alba Iulia, Arad, Bacău, Bârlad, Brașov, Cluj-Napoca, Constanța, Craiova, Deva, Galați, Iași, Oradea, Piatra Neamț, Pitești, Sibiu, Suceava, Târgu Jiu, Timișoara and Tulcea.

The public will get the opportunity to see various experiments and science presentations while children can attend various educational activities and contests.

The Grigore Antipa Natural Sciences Museum will offer those attending the events organized on the premises of the museum the opportunity to test a VR application. With the help of a pair of 3D glasses, bussers can choose to see the world from the perspective of a spider or a scorpion and explore the inside of a room where they can follow their prey. Workshops held at the Antipa Museum explore topics such as: How to extract DNA from fruits?; What does a zoologist need when doing field work? Or A trip through the underwater world of the shellfish.

Entrance to these events is free. The full program of the Researchers’ Night in Bucharest can be checked here.
