Saturday Morning Physics visits GSI



For the 16th time 230 pupils from all over the state of Hesse had the opportunity to visit GSI on November 30, 2013 in the framework of the lecture series "Saturday Morning Physics" of the Technical University Darmstadt. They gained an insight into the current research at GSI and FAIR and explored the GSI accelerators and experiments in guided tours. 

"Saturday Morning Physics" is hosted by the physics department of the Technical University. The series of lectures is held annually aims to further the interest of young people for physics. In talks and experiments on consecutive Saturdays the pupils learn about the current research at the university. The visit to GSI is the only excursion. GSI, amongst many others, sponsors the project already from the start.
