Saturday Morning Physics at the GSI Helmholtzzentrum
On Saturday December 4, 2010, for the thirteenth time 300 pupils from all over the State of Hessen were given the opportunity to visit the GSI Helmholtzzentrum and gain an insight into the current research. In guided tours through the facility the pupils learned about the particle accelerators and about experiments from nuclear, atomic, bio and plasma physics.
The lecture series "Saturday Morning Physics" is conducted by the faculty of physics of the Technical University Darmstadt. It is held annually and aims to increase the interest of young people for physics. In lectures and experiments the pupils get to know about current developments in the physical research at the university. The GSI visit is the only excursion of the series.
Next to Lufthansa Systems, the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft und the publisher Springer-Verlag also the GSI Helmholtzzentrum is among the sponsors and supporters of the project from the start. The web site of Saturday Morning Physics: www.satmorphy.de
