On Sunday 17 October the doors of KVI were opened for the annual open day in the framework of Oktober Kennismaand. With 523 visitors the day was very successful. The two presentations in the framework of the theme 'Long live variation' were well-visited. At the children's activities - like soldering an electronic tea-warmer - it was a big crowd. At all activities enthusiastic staff members and interested visitors were found. The KVI open day was again part of the open day of the Zernike complex of the University of Groningen. Like last year, also SRON (space research), ScienceLinx and the Discovery Bus participated.
