Open Science Days 2020

Dear Friends of Science and the Ocean,

Unfortunately, due to the pandemic situation related to the COVID-19, we have officially decided to postponed our Sopot Science Day, the Junior Conference 2020 entitled "Where the World is Heading", the International Sopot Youth Conference 2020 entitled "Where is the World Heading" organized as part of the Open Science Days for May / June 2021. Because we know that from September and October schools and colleges will be working under new conditions, we decided that we won't be looking for dates to organize our events this fall. However, we hope that we will be able to meet at our educational workshops entitled "Ocean of Changes", at the Scientific Cafe and at any other events that we will be organizing since autumn. We would like to personally thank you for your patience under this difficult situation

So, please stay with us.

As a result of the worldwide coronavirus outbreak we have decided to officially announcing that the Open Science Days are postponed to autumn. It is our responsibility and duty to ensure these activities continue despite current extreme situation. We will be monitoring the circumstances and we will provide the new dates as soon as possible. We would like to personally thank you for your patience under this dificult situation. Please follow the page due to updates in the event schedule!
Still, see you in Sopot!

Open Science Days, which are organized by the Institute of Oceanology of the Polish Academy of Sciences in cooperation with the Sopot Science Society will be held in autumn 2020.

On the first day, we invite young ocean explorers, aged from 5 to 18 (different age groups) to participate in a Junior Conference 2020 entitled “Where the world is heading?”. We want young students or groups of young students at all education levels to present their thoughts and/or marine environment research results.

On the second day, we invite students and doctoral candidates to submit their presentations as part of an International Sopot Youth Conference 2020 entitled “Where the world is heading?”, organized for 11 years already.

On the third day, in reference to the World Oceans Day 2020 (which falls in June 8, 2020), we meet at the Instytut Oceanologii in Sopot as part of the Sopot Science Day entitled "Ocean of changes". During the picnic, everyone will have the opportunity to learn about the current state of knowledge about the oceans, with particular emphasis on the Baltic Sea environment. All classes and shows will be interactive, with many games and puzzles.

So, we will see each other in Sopot soon! All events are open and free.
