White coats reveal human face to public

Abstract:
Lake Zurich was the venue for a series of public scientific events as Switzerland took part in the Europe-wide Researchers' Night 2007, presenting the human face of white-coated scientists.



Flying robots were only one of the exhibits that also included health technology, genetics, nanotechnology, cosmic physics, information technology and energy projects such as the Swiss PAC Car that holds the world record for the distance travelled on a litre of fuel.



Passers-by were encouraged to take part in chemistry demonstrations, discover the positive impact science plays in their lives and simply chat to researchers about their work.



Friday was the third time the European Commission had organised the event but the first time Switzerland, in the shape of Zurich University and the Federal Institute of Technology, had participated.
