Christmas Physics Event for the Whole Family

The Faculty of Physics of the University of Bremen invites guests to the Physik zum Advent show. On Saturday, December 15, at 11 a.m. university scientists will present physical phenomena in mechanical science, acoustics, and electrical science in a short and relaxed format. Admission is free.

Do you think physics is dry? You must be joking! Interested parties will be won over at the entertaining physics lecture, which the University of Bremen traditionally organizes during Advent. The show is aimed at all those who enjoy experimenting, especially schoolchildren, parents, teachers, and students. Once again, the program includes many amazing experiments using high voltage, ultrasound, and theatre smoke among other things. From the center of mass of a broom and table-tennis balls that are accelerated almost to the speed of sound right through to exploding chocolate marshmallows – there’s something for everyone. The scientists also make links to everyday life. Instead of “don’t try this at home,” there are some experiments that are particularly suitable for testing out at home.

The venue is lecture hall 1 in building NW 1 at Otto-Hahn-Allee 1, 28359 Bremen. The event starts at 11 a.m. and admission is from 10:40 a.m. Admission is free.
