BUTE SBC – Night of Museums

Around Midsummer Night (24th June), which is the longest day in the year, there are a lot of cultural programs in Hungary. The Night of Museums is one of them.
Following the tradition of previous years, the Budapest University of Technology and Economics IAS/PES Joint Student Branch Chapter also took part in this event in 2013, on June 22. This time our members performed scientific experiments with dry-ice and liquid nitrogen with the help of the Wigner Jenő College for Advance Studies and the Department of Energy Engineering. We had about 200 guests, fascinated by the laws of Physics, so the visitors and the organisers could spend a successful and magnificent evening together.
