If you are interested in science and would like to learn more about new developments and the research behind it, we invite you to explore the “Long Night of Science”. On Saturday, May 21, 2022, the 10th Long Night of Science, around 130 venues will open their doors from 18:00 to midnight with more than 750 programs to discover.
Scientists from universities, research-based companies, and municipal and state institutions show which products and services are being developed in Nuremberg, Erlangen, and Fürth.
The FIS has participated in the children’s program for several years. This year our doors will open between 14:00 – 17:00 for children aged 6-12!
Our Grade 11 students of Sports Science, together with their Physical Exercise and Sport Science teachers, Mr. Adrian Haug and Ms. Alessia Prest, will lead the activities for children to explore the relationship between sports and science with fun and exciting and action-oriented experiments. What do soccer and physics have to do with each other? What is the science behind stretching? Why do muscles shorten when contracting? Finding the answers to these questions and many more will amaze children and adults!
It’s an excellent opportunity for students to put their theoretical knowledge into practice, train their communication skills, and provide a light-hearted, enjoyable afternoon to the community as part of Service Learning.
Ms. Prest and Mr. Haug are excited to promote this subject amongst the school and also the wider community. “It benefits our students and their guests in understanding more about the relationship between sciences and sports in many aspects and will give them insides in the scientific background they might never have thought of,” explains Ms. Prest.
Tickets can be purchased in advance online or onsite.
We are looking forward to seeing many of you there!
