Science Festival 2021

Learn about plasma physics with researchers, engineers and students. From the infinitely large to the infinitely small, the adventure will be fun and interactive!

PLAS @ PAR will participate in the next Fête de la Science at Sorbonne University from October 8 to 10, 2021. Workshops, shows, games and discussions will allow you to discover or rediscover plasmas and their multiple applications!

  • Du 08 Oct. 2021 au 10 Oct. 2021

  • 10:00 - 18:00

  • Sorbonne Université, 4 place Jussieu 75005 Paris

In the program

  • Discussion with physicists around thematic posters and an exhibition of 3D models of the solar system.
  • The Escape Game Mission Eva Z'ionS is back this year! All audiences and recommended from 12 years old (accompanied by an adult) take part in an Escape Game at the Source d'Ions Multichargés in Paris. The goal ? Decipher three puzzles around atoms and light to obtain a 3-digit code allowing you to join the secret society of Mendeleïev's disciples. Watch out, the clock is ticking, will you take up the challenge in time? (45min). 3 time slots on Saturday October 9: 11 a.m., 2 p.m. & 3 p.m. (registration on site).
  • NEW: the physicists of the Federation will produce, on Saturday October 9 at 1 p.m. and 5 p.m., a new show: "Bam! Charge", a new contemporary dance creation around plasma physics, in collaboration with Mairi Pardalaki (association Berdahi).
    Change of location! The show will take place between rounds 53 and 54.

  • The 3D aurora projections which meet every year a real success will also be present! A unique opportunity to observe the fascinating spectacle of the aurora  (a contribution of the IAP and the LPP). Date: Saturday, October 9: schedules to come (registration on site).
  • Attention transformation! The plasma mirror, very popular with the youngest, will be on display again. Created by the Danny Rose studio, this playful plasma mirror allows physics to be approached through the visual arts; only one rule for young and old: have fun! Continuously, all weekend.
  • Spectroscopy workshop supervised by physicists with homemade spectroscopes built by the students. Continuously, all weekend.
  • Discovery of the Planeterrella to understand one of the most fascinating astrophysical phenomena: the aurora. Continuously, all weekend.
