The National Museum of Natural History, Sofia will participate for a second year in the initiative ‘Researchers’ Night’. The doors will be open from 17:00 to 20:00 on Friday, 25 September. The museum will offer guided tours to its visitors.
The ‘Researchers’ Night’ is organised for a fifth consecutive year in Europe. The event is dedicated to all who are professionally involved in science and to the young people, for which the science is a magic now, but maybe a career in the future.
In Bulgaria the scientists will participate in diverse and entertaining events in Sofia, Plovdiv, Ruse, Stara Zagora, Varna, Shumen, Yambol, Silistra, Pleven, Haskovo and Dimitrovgrad.
The majority of the events are associated with the International Year of Astronomy — 2009, 30 years of the flight in space of the first Bulgarian astronaut Georgi Ivanov and the 140th anniversary of the founding of the oldest scientific institution in Bulgaria — the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences.
The program will include exhibitions, demonstrations, entertainment, research shows, film screenings, musical and poetic performances of scientists and more.
