Christmas Physics Show for the Whole Family

The Faculty of Physics of the University of Bremen invites you to their traditional show "Physics in Advent". The university scientists will present a sequence of physical phenomena from the fields of mechanics, acoustics, and vacuum physics on Saturday, November 30, at 11 a.m.. Admission is free.

Physics is boring? Not at all! Everyone that is interested can convince himself or herself of this at the entertaining physics lecture, which the University of Bremen traditionally organizes on the Saturday before the first Advent Sunday. The show is aimed at everyone who is enthusiastic about experiments, especially pupils, parents, teachers, and students. Once again, there will be many amazing experiments, which also include the use of ultrasound and theatre smoke. From the mass center of a broom to table tennis balls that will be accelerated to almost the speed of sound, to exploding chocolate marshmallows, it’s all on show.

The scientists will also provide a reference to everyday life. Instead of "don’t try this at home“, some experiments are explicitly examples to follow. Justus Notholt, Kathrin Sebald, Stephan Figge, Matthias Buschmann, and Christoph Turk will present the experiments.

The event will take place in lecture hall H1 in the NW1 building at Otto-Hahn-Allee 1, 28359 Bremen. It starts at 11 a.m..  Admission begins at 10.40 a.m. and is free.
