“INL strongly believes that science can help to shape our culture and increase scientific awareness in society.”

ABOUT INL

On September, 24th, INL will hold its second Open House event to celebrate science with free activities for all ages.

The second Edition of INL Open House project invites the public of Braga, and its surroundings, to get in touch with science and enter into our Nano world, free of charge. We will explain how nanotechnology works in our research areas and translate this knowledge to various people, from different backgrounds, educations and ages. INL embraces this challenge in order to get closer to the community and show the benefits of nanotechnology to everyone who is interested in visit us. The Open House will also take advantage of the presence of world renowned scientists who will come to Braga for the MNE 2017 (see http://mne2017.org/) and will be invited to also be a part of this event.

With these goals, INL will present to the visiting families a set of planned activities to demonstrate concepts that are often “abstract”, in order to transpose them to a reality closer to their daily life:

  • Several activities of scientific nature for specific age groups, but which are also interesting and instructive for all members of the family.
  • Exhibitions of the work already produced and developed by the INL “family”.
  • Visits to the main laboratories of the INL (clean rooms).
  • Virtual visit in our auditorium with all possible details.
  • Presentation of artistic demonstrations, showcasing the main characteristics that art and science have in common, such as creativity and imagination.
  • Talks.
