The touring Experiment Yourself! exhibition can be upgraded with popular science experiments, which mix fun with learning. The shows are interesting and very effective. Currently, we offer two shows.
The show is supposed to make its viewers aware of the problem related to the amount of waste we generate. An average Pole produces about 300 kilograms of waste a year. This is a considerable amount if we think about the fact that we have nearly 38 million people in our country! We would like to encourage you to consider what happens to waste after leaves our homes, offices or schools. We talk about how to act eco-friendly by presenting the rule of processing waste (3R: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle). We will also talk about why trash needs to be sorted and why sometimes various materials, such as plastic, metal or paper may be collected in the same bin. At the show we encourage and engage the audience to participate in the experiments. In the first part of the show we describe the issue of the amount of waste and discuss the 3R rule, and in the second – the ways of sorting waste at recycling facilities.
Let’s play! We would like to invite you to play music with us! We guarantee plenty of entertainment and a good deal of engaging activities. We will search for elements necessary to create sounds. We will think about what music is to a physicist, and what music is to an artist. We will notice how differently this subject can be approached – both from the artistic side as well as from the physical-acoustic side. We will also take a closer look at the human senses related to sound: speech and hearing. At the end, everyone will come together as a big orchestra and play out a melody!
During the show, our explainers show some phenomena, that we witness everyday, but pay no attention to them. They are linked to atmospheric pressure, which is the pressure the air makes on the surface of the Earth. The show explains in an interesting and amusing way, why are we able to breathe, why is it harder to breathe in the mountains and why can’t mountain-climbers enjoy a cup of strong tea while climbing, but also tell you, how much does the air above us weigh.
