Researchers Night 2022 at CEITEC BUT

About event

It's finally here! After the covid break, the laboratories of our research center Pod Palackého vrchem can be opened again to visitors from the public.

And it won't be just any Researcher's Night. In addition to traditional visits to laboratories, tours and experiments, you will be among the first to see the Art in the Nanoworld exhibition in the atrium of our main building. It was created as part of Štěpánka Piskačková's dissertation project in cooperation with scientists from CEITEC BUT. The main idea of the exhibition is to connect representatives of two seemingly completely different fields, whose cooperation brings new space for creativity and enables social overlap.

You will also be able to visit the nanostructure from the VISUALOVE studio. 


Laboratory tours

  • CEITEC Nano cleanroom laboratory spaces: Why are they called "clean"? How do researchers have to dress to enter them? How extensive are our labs? What can be explored in them? You will be able to ask about all this during tours led by the most professional - users of the laboratories.
  • Advanced Sensors Laboratory: Cybernetics and Robotics Research Group Laboratory. Dr.  Zdeněk Havránek will guide you.
  • X-ray Computed Tomography Lab: Are you interested in how they scan objects in the CT lab? Can you recognize what you see on the holographic projector?

Experiments and activities on your own skin

  • What does science taste like? Scientists from the Advanced Biomaterials research group are preparing tasting experiments for you. Will you test how cotton wool tastes from sucrose disaccharide composed of α-D-glucose and β-D-fructose, connected by an α-(1⟷2)-β-glycosidic bond?
  • How fast can you do it? Dressing up in a lab suit is no fun. Our scientists have to do it several times a day.
  • Both chemistry and physics are fun! See for yourself in front of the laboratory of the Magneto-Optical and ThZ Spectroscopy research group, whose members are preparing fun experiments for you. Maybe they'll let you try pipetting too?
  • Have you ever heard of pulsatile reactions? These are special because they change over time - from blue to brown and back. Scientists know them under the name oscillatory reaction. Dr. Jan Žídek from the Advanced Polymer Materials research group will present these reactions to you in an unconventional arrangement.

Accompanying program

  • Tour of the nanostructure from the VISUALOVE multimedia studio in the yard
  • Take part in "Image for CEITEC" and engage all your senses. What do you imagine under the term research, scientists, nanoworld (...)?
  • Exhibition Art in the Nanoworld: Exhibition of interdisciplinary works from the art-scientific laboratory FUD UJEP & CEITEC Nano (more information about the exhibition HERE).
