On 29 September, all inquisitive children, young people and adults are invited to visit the Museum of Energy of Latvenergo Group in Riga and Elektrum Energy Efficiency Centre in Jūrmaladuring the Researchers’ Night. The word ZINĀTNE (SCIENCE) will be deciphered in educational and insightful activities.
SCIENCE – is it found only in laboratories, flasks and machinery? Latvenergo Group has long been telling us that science, particularly the exact sciences, is everywhere around us and makes life exciting. Many have experimented with FIZMIX, the most knowledgeable young people have participated in the Fizmix Experiment contest, while others have attended activities at museums. Therefore, Latvenergo in collaboration with Riga Technical University, the UNESCO Latvian National Commission and many other partners, will decipher what hides behind the word ZINĀTNE (SCIENCE) during the Researchers’ Night.
Z – ZINĀTKĀRE (INQUISITIVENESS)
I – INOVĀCIJA (INNOVATION)
N – NĀKOTNE (FUTURE)
Ā – v=s/t (VELOCITY)
T – TEHNOLOĢIJAS (TECHNOLOGY)
N – NOBELS (NOBEL)
E – EKSPERIMENTS (EXPERIMENT)
The Museum of Energy of Latvenergo Group in Riga and Elektrum Energy Efficiency Centre in Jūrmalaparticipate with various educationaland insightful activities in the joint event programme of the Researchers’ Night and invite everyone to attend. The enthusiasm of scientists and its presence in everyday life will be demonstrated through physics, energy efficiency and photography in Riga from 14:00 hrs to 20.00 hrs and in Jūrmala from 9:00 hrs to 16:00 hrs.
During the Researchers’ Night 2017 event, children, pupils and parents, young people, university and college students, seniors and other interested people are encouraged to take the opportunity to explore the interesting and fascinating life of a scientist and rediscover things without which our daily lives are no longer unthinkable and which are available to us thanks to the achievements of science. Perhaps, on this night it will be possible to catch a glimpse of the future and get acquainted with new technological ideas that may enter our lives with the help of scientists.
The Researchers’ Night, which is held for the 12th time in Latvia, is a European event organised by the State Education Development Agency (SEDA) in cooperation with Latvian universities, research institutes and museums. By holding this event, Latvia gets involved in the joint activity of many European countries which organise the Researchers’ Night and arrange a variety ofevents in more than 250 European cities at the end of September in order to explain the scientific achievements in an attractive way and allow visitors to look into the work of scientific laboratories.
