RESEARCHERS’ NIGHT for the fifth time at IMP PAS

Researchers Night 2022

This year’s Researchers’ Night at our Institute will start on September 30 at 4:00 p.m.

We currently have special occasion to be happy because we will be celebrating a small jubilee – this is the fifth time when IMP PAS takes part in the event, which aims to bring the scope of scientists' activity closer to the public. We want to create an opportunity to get to know each other in an atmosphere of fun and to show how we can popularize science in interesting ways. Our scientists will prepare many attractions and surprises for you, incl. interesting experiments, workshops, and visits to research laboratories. “In the Labyrinth of Physics" we will demonstrate to our guests that, according to the thesis of the EU project HORIZON-MSCA-2022-CITIZENS-01, "The future of the Earth is possible thanks to the continuous cooperation between scientists from various fields". We encourage you to familiarize yourself with the program prepared by our employees: :

We are overjoyed that this year we will be able to meet together in the real word and not only online as it has been during the two previous editions. The registration of participation in the events is available online at:

We cordially invite you to join us at IMP PAS:


Final of the National Construction Competition

On Friday, June 10, 2022, the Final of the National Construction Competition took place, the aim of which was to build vehicles powered by mousetraps and driving them over a distance of 12 meters in the shortest possible time.

Over 50 teams from all over Poland applied for the competition, of which 35 teams took part, and 18 vehicles reached the finish line. The vehicles were made of a mousetrap (each team had the same mousetraps) and of ... Imagination!

The competition was full of excitement as each team had the ability to release the same vehicle 3 times. In between races, there was an opportunity to improve the designs, which was often associated with great emotions!

The essence of the competition was learning through play and observation that in the construction of even the smallest devices the laws of physics are of great importance. And that understanding these laws allows you to directly apply textbook knowledge in practice.
