Demonstrations of experiments for primary school, 12.06.2023

On 12 June 2023, the staff of CMPW PAN organised a demonstration of experiments thematically related to the curriculum of grade 8 of a primary school. The demonstration was attended by grade 8 pupils from the Adam Mickiewicz Primary School No. 7 in Ruda Śląska. At the beginning, Wojciech Wałach, Ph.D., Professor of CMPW PAN, presented the Centre and the scientific activities conducted at the institute in the form of a lecture.

In the subsequent demonstration part, conducted by W. Wałach, A. Utrata-Wesołek, Natalia Oleszko-Torbus, M. Bochenek and D. Lipowska-Kur the following topics were discussed:
1. pressure and properties of gases - a state of matter strongly dependent on pressure (demonstrations with commentary)
2. metals and non-metals - characteristics, states of matter and basic reactions of elements and their oxides (demonstrations with commentary)
3. phase transitions - transitions between solid, liquid and gaseous states and the application of phase transitions to the separation of substances (demonstrations with commentary)
4. interesting experiments (demonstrations with commentary)
- chemical gardens
- magic baguettes
- chemical lights
- physical heater
Some of the experiments were carried out by students assisted by Centre staff.
The visit to the CMPW PAN allowed the students to see the research laboratories, become acquainted with scientific and research work and see or perform experiments related to phenomena discussed in chemistry and physics lessons.

In short

The Center belongs to category A of scientific facilities in Poland. It was established on January 1, 2007 as a result of a merger of the Center of Polymer Chemistry of PAN in Zabrze and the Institute of Carbochemistry of PAN in Gliwice – two centers of the Polish Academy of Sciences which, for many years, had been conducting systematic work on the production and properties of macromolecular polymer and carbon materials.
