Zajęci laboratoryjne – grupy do 16 osób

Program for groups of up to 16 participants

For the groups with up to 16 participants there are about 20 stands. In some cases more than one experiment can be carried out – there are about 30 experiments to be chosen from. There is a limit of two persons per stand. Each class starts with an introductory lecture for the participants and finishes with participants describing their experiments and obtained results. During the measurements, it is the qualified DEiS staff supervising the course of the classes, during the reporting seminar it is the group supervisor who is in charge of the proceeding.

The choice of the experiments should be declared and discussed at least two weeks before the classes. The participants should be acquainted with the guide to their experiment. The experiment titles are presented in the table below.

The activities last from 9 to 15:30.
