The Natural Science Open Day is designed to gather and demonstrate, in a funny and interesting way, basic knowledge in the fields of Physics, Chemistry and Biology which have been teaching at high school in order to make it easier for participants to find out more about natural science.

Performing and explaining experiments on Electric, Optic and Mechanic

Over four hundred high school pupils excitingly participated in the event. Many interesting experiments in the fields of physics, chemistry and biology were designed and offerred to pupils through the event. Pupils had the opportunity to learn and understand more about Physics, Chemistry and Biology, asked questions, spoke to lecturers, graduate and undergraduate students and carried out attractive experiments by themself.
