The open day on Sunday 6 October brought a record number of visistors. No fewer than 650 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, proton therapy and the slowing down of molecules were being explained. Children could do a search through the building, build their own electric motor, get a make-over as a pirate and eat a nitrogen icecream.
The KVI open day is part of Zpanned Zernike, the campus-wide open day of the Zernike Campus Groningen, and of the national Weekend of Science (Weekend van de Wetenschap). On the entire campus, 2000 visitors were counted during the open day. In the framework of the national theme "Treasure-chamber", children could collect "treasures" at the participating institutes at the Zernike Campus. For at least two treasures they were given a treasury.
