This year’s edition started at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 27, giving the audience a chance to dig into science from every angle during a nine-hour, free-of-charge, open-air event, executives have said.

The 2023 Science Picnic is an opportunity to meet real scientists from Poland and abroad, attend presentations, shows and workshops, and learn while having fun, according to organisers.

The main theme this year is "scientific revolutions" and many of the picnic’s activities are focused on showcasing various milestones in the development of science, officials said.

There are presentations of the latest research, inventions and technologies; reenactments of classic experiments; and a do-it-yourself zone, according to an announcement. 

The audience have an opportunity to learn how to produce 2D and 3D maps of icebergs; meet a state-of-the art, AI-powered humanoid robot that can converse about every topic; and learn about how UV light can be turned into electricity, among other attractions. 

In line with tradition, Polish Radio journalists are reporting live from the 2023 Science Picnic.

Billed as "Europe’s biggest outdoor celebration of science," Polish Radio’s Science Picnic is organised in partnership with Warsaw's Copernicus Science Centre (CNK).
