ESRs at the Nuit de la Science (Night of Science)

On the week-end of 7th and 8th of July, the Nuit de la Science (Night of Science) was organized by the city of Geneva. This biannual event is the occasion for the general public (young and old alike) to learn more about science with playful experiments.

This year, three early stage researchers (ESRs) from QCALL, Gaëtan Gras, Antonio Ortu and Davide Rusca, were present at this event to animate two stands during the week-end.  The first one consisted in a game where people challenged a computer at generating a random string of 0 and 1. The second experiment was meant to introduced visitors to different types of interactions between light and matter (diffusion, fluorescence). Those two experiments attracted a lot of interest. Many people came to discuss with us and it was the occasion to talk more about our personal work.
