On the occasion of the Science Festival Luxembourg which took place on 11-14 November 2021 at Neumünster Abbey, researchers from the University of Luxembourg interacted with the general public to explain science in a fun and interactive way!

In particular, they could participate in the following workshops: 

  • Monsieur Fourier and the wonderful world of imagery, by Nicolò Maccaferri (DPhyMS)

Play with light to explore how images of very small objects are created in a microscope. Our object of study: a disc engraved in chrome on glass with fourteen different patterns. Finally, discover the different optical effects that can be achieved with Fourier optics.

  • More foxes, fewer hares? (Scienteens Lab)

Enter the world of feedback! Playfully investigate the interactions between predator and prey populations (e.g. fox and hare) and discover numerous other everyday applications of coupled systems from the fields of technology, nature, science and medicine.

  • Renewable energies and the climate crisis, by Wang Taowen (DPhyMS)

Discover the consequences of the climate crisis and how urgently we need renewable and green energies. How do solar cells work and how much energy can they produce? We illustrate the connection between our lifestyle and our energy consumption.

  • Science Comic Exhibition (DESCOM)

Discover the world of science and research in Luxembourg via comics! Take a ride through your intestines, follow the journey of a water molecule or take part in a superhero contest by reading one of the science comics of “LUX:plorations – A Universe of Research”.

  • The simplicity of complexity by Bruno Teheux (DMATH)

Mathematics makes it possible to construct structures of infinite variety from very simple means. Explore, through games, a mathematical universe that is in constant construction. Without formalism, all that will remain is the joy of discovery, reflection and sharing.
