UV Fair Experiments have come with 66 science and technology

Science Museum of Valencia on April 2nd, 17th edition of Fair-Competition Experiments and Demonstrations.

The event, organized by the Faculty of Physics of the University of Valencia (UV), is a science festival that brings physical and technical training closer to secondary school students and the public in a creative and participatory role. At the same time during the fair (between 10 am and 1 pm) the Children’s Physics workshop will be active. Prizes will be delivered at 1:30 am

The fair competition is expected to involve 300 people, including students and teachers. Free access, it hosts 66 posts, with different experimental STEM projects developed by ESO, Baccalaureate and vocational training students, with the help of pedagogic teachers.

The public is asked about the operation and basis of any experiments. At the same time, girls and boys will be able to visit the Fisicalandia workshop to build and understand simple demonstrations of natural phenomena in the constitution of norms.

Experiments, in addition to the fair, competition for the best things and the most public projects are decided. The judges appoint the teachers of the university and the secondary schools will evaluate the proper operation, the correct understanding of the work and the clarity of the explanations. There will be five prizes: four out of three hundred coins for each type of competition according to the study cycle, and one out of 200 for the most decisive project of the public visiting the fair, and different honorable mentions.

The Coordinator of the Experiment is Chantal Ferrer Roca, Professor of Physics and Electromagnetism at the University of Valencia, and the organizing committee is also made up of Jordi Vidal Perona, Miguel V. Andrés Bou and Amparo Pons Martí. “We also have a large number of voluntary supporters from the faculty (60) and thirty members of university judges and secondary school teachers”, says Ferrer.

Works must be experimental and are divided into two categories: demonstrations and experiments and, on the one hand, technological applications. In the explanations, students (individually or in groups of up to four) must illustrate the relationships between natural phenomena and technological systems, explaining the physical principles on which they are based.

The event will end at 1:00 am, and the awards ceremony will begin at 1:30 am, which will take place in the Santiago Grisolia Auditorium of the Science Museum of Valencia, preceded by a short scientific exhibition. At a later time, there will be an exhibition of the project’s achievements, in which the exhibits are inspected by the students.

The videos and accompanying materials will be published on the Internet as educational and development materials, to disseminate the work of secondary schools and other groups to carry out experiments and to encourage the use of visual knowledge.

The Fair Experiments has the collaboration of the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology of the Ministry of Science and Innovation (FECYT-Micin) through a competitive plan, the Science Museum of Valencia, the Council of the City of Valencia, the Institute of Corpuscular Physics (IFIC) and the Royal Spanish Society among others. In the University of Valencia, in addition to the Physical Faculty, the Incorporation Delegation at the University, the Equality Unit, the Scientific Culture and Innovation Unit, and the Permanent Work Collaborate.
