Will humans ever reach Mars? What are the latest breakthroughs in cancer research? Also, who was Chaim Weizmann and why is the nation’s leading science institution named after him? The answers to all these questions, and more, will be clear to anyone attending the European Researchers Night on Thursday at the Weizmann Institute of Science in Rehovot. Marking 70 years for the institute, the public is invited to a night full of science lectures and exploration.
Offering a range of lectures and activities for everyone from eight-year-old children to adults, the night includes 30 scientists who will explain what it is they do in the lab, present unique scientific demonstrations on a live stage and have a special stage showcasing projects awarded research grants by the EU.
While admission to all events is free, the public is requested to register online and arrive via public transportation. For further details see here.
