600 Visitors on Open Day

22 October 2012
Open day 2012

The open day on Sunday 21 October was very successful. Approximately 600 visitors found their way to the KVI. There they could look around at the AGOR particle accelerator, several reasearch groups and technical departments. In two presentations, the Higgs particle and the strong nuclear force were being explained. In front of the building, cyclists of student cycling club Tandje Hoger gave a demonstration of the Doppler effect. The speed of light was being measured by means of lasers and - in the Discovery Truck next to the KVI - in grated cheese in a microwave oven. Children could do a search through the building and solder their own FM radio. All afternoon it was a pleasant crowd at KVI.

As last year, 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.
