• Faithful to my Homeland, the Republic of Poland



  • 13 December 2018

    More than 130 young participants took part in educational workshops held at the Embassy of Poland in Copenhagen under the supervision of tutors representing the EXPERYMENT Science Centre. The event marked the Year of Polish Science.

    On 1 December 2018 Christmas workshops led by tutors of the EXPERYMENT Science Centre in Gdynia took place at the Embassy of Poland in Copenhagen. “Chemical Detectives” gathered to explore the basics of fingerprint identification as well as blood typing and to solve genetic puzzles. During a “Paper revolution” young researchers joined a scientific play centred around mathematics and topology; they broke codes, used paper clips to build roller coasters and constructed paper airplanes. Teenagers concentrated on the “50 faces of the nail” while building balancing constructions out of nails, using self-made electric nails for writing and producing nail-based ink.


    2018 is the Year of Polish Science, providing an excellent opportunity to promote science and the greatest Polish researchers, in particular Marie Skłodowska-Curie, Nicolaus Copernicus, Stefan Banach or Ludwik Hirszfeld, a doctor, bacteriologist and immunologist, the creator of the Polish immunological school among the youngest generation of Polish emigrants.


    All participants received special “scientific” Christmas gifts.


    The event was organised with the support of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (funds designated for cooperation with Polish diaspora and Poles abroad).


    You can read more about the event on the City Hall of Gdynia website (in Polish).
