Zpannend Zernike is a science festival for young and old. How does the brain work? Why are children better at Memory than adults? What does it feel like to be old and have difficulty walking, seeing or hearing? What does DNA look like? Can you virtually swim with dolphins? Ever seen a robot dance to Michael Jackson?
Groningen has put together a very diverse programme going by the name of Zpannend Zernike, after Professor Frits Zernike who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1953. Come to the centre of Groningen on the Saturday or the Zernike Campus on the Sunday for lectures, demonstrations, experiments and answers to those questions you always wanted to ask. Everyone is welcome from 12.00 noon to 5.00 p.m. Admission is free.
