Science Day 17th September 2010

On September 17, 2010 the Center of Polymer and Carbon Materials took part in the national “7th Science Day”.

The purpose of the event was to propagate as widely as possible the activity of scientific and research, educational and training institutions as well as companies, clubs and associations not only from Zabrze, but also from the entire region. The Science Day promotes the most important scientific and technical achievements among city residents, especially school-aged youth. Using interactive, accessible and unconventional methods it encourages people to take a closer look at fields which at a first glance may be perceived as difficult, unknown and sometimes even seemingly boring.

How to perform first aid, can everyone become a musician and what is emotional painting? Participants of the 7th Science Day, which took place in the Poległych Bohaterów Park at ul. Dubiela, could learn the answers to all these questions. The motto of this year's Science Day was “The World without Mysteries”.

44 specially prepared exhibition stands offered surprises to the visitors. The stands of the Center of Polymer and Carbon Materials of PAN evoked the largest interest; there, under the slogan “Between Fun and Chemistry”, those interested could perform various chemical experiments under the supervision of specialists. At the stand of the Prof. Zbigniew Religa Foundation for the Development of Cardiac Surgery, which co-organized the Zabrze Science Day, teenagers could learn how a surgical robot works and see a simulation of a real surgery.

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.
