Science Night attracts a crowd of curious people.

In Geneva, the Night of Science ended on Sunday with a “very positive” result, according to the organizers. Several thousand people visited the Museum of the History of Science and the Perle-du-Lac Park, which is the museum’s venue, over the weekend. Twenty platforms were set up to welcome the public.

This fourteenth edition of the event is marked by cycles, which are ubiquitous in the living world and in nature, whether at the level of the atom or the universe. The discovery is made through guided tours, conferences, workshops and experiments in many fields.

For example, one demonstration dissected the operation of a steam engine, another explained the Earth’s rotations, and yet another demonstrated computer algorithms. Scientists on site uncovered some secret of physics, biochemistry, or robotic curiosity.

The audience was enthusiastic about the discussions with the experts. Young and old stayed in the stands, and not just because of the rain on Saturday, as Laurence Isaline Stahl Grech, the exhibition’s project manager, rejoiced.

The Night of Science is the result of a collaboration between different institutions. It was created by the Museum of Geneva, which brings together the Museum of Natural History and the Museum of the History of Science. The event welcomes professors from the University of Geneva and the EPFL School or enthusiasts from the Geneva Astronomical Society.

UNIGE has thus set up eight of its educational laboratories on the lawns of the Perle du Lac Park: Astroscope, Biscope, Chimiscope, Infscope, Lifescope, Mathscope, Physiscope and Terrascope. Fun and interactive workshops allow young and old to discover different scientific topics, enough to arouse curiosity.
