The Department of Quantum Matter Physics is very active to make science accessible to all, and to awake the interest of the youngest for science. It creates opportunities to strengthen the ties between the general public and the researchers, and promotes science through different actions to inform about the fascinating aspects of its cutting-edge research.
To reach out the younger generations, the PhysiScope was created in 2007 by MaNEP NCCR in collaboration with the Physics Section of UNIGE. At this public demo-lab physics is presented to high-schools classes in a very original way through hands-on experiments.
Also initiated by MaNEP NCCR, the travelling art & science exhibition SUPRA100 especially contributes in promoting the DQMP research.
The production of the TV show L’Oreille des Kids, in collaboration with the Swiss Television channel RTS is also an innovative outreach action. It encourages young audiences to approach in an funny way the major laws of physics.
Do you have question about physics? Ask them through the RTS découverte web site! A scientist of UNIGE will answer to you.
