The open day on Sunday 30 October brought the record number of 620 visitors to the KVI. More than 70 KVI staff members were present to help visitors, to tell them about their research, show them technical master pieces, do experiments, and give lectures. Children could enjoy themselves with a search through the building, soldering an electronic dice, assisting in a measurement of the speed of light, and firing a vacuum gun. A large part of the research facilities, among which the AGOR cyclotron, could be viewed. In lectures the recent spectacular results of measurements of the speed of neutrino's (Rob Timmermans: "Sneller dan het licht? Doe 'ns normaal, man!") and the plans for a new KVI facility (Ronnie Hoekstra: "ZFEL: De röntgenlaser van de toekomst") were elucidated.
The KVI open day was part of Zpanned Zernike, the campus-wide open day of the Zernike Campus of the University of Groningen, and of Oktober Kennismaand, the annual Dutch month of knowledge in October.
