The real holiday of science took place on September 22 in the Taras Shevchenko capital’s park. This day, experts, scientists, and enthusiasts shared their knowledge with people during the fifth "Scientific Picnics" festival, which takes place annually in different cities in September and May and promotes science. These picnics are special because they do not give a theory, but practical approaches are used. The organizers excite and entertain in a scientific way, and they reveal the secrets of physics, chemistry, biology and other sciences. Here you can see that science is everywhere.

The Junior Academy of Sciences of Ukraine is constantly involved in this event as part of the Scientific Mobile Studio. This year, workers of the new JAS project - Laboratory of Experimental Researches "Ex Lab" carried out scientific experiments with children. It’s educational laboratories with modern equipment, scientific support of students' researches and access to new knowledge through practical experiments on biology, chemistry, physics, mathematics and robotics.

"Ex Lab" experts carried out various experiments. Those who wanted to get acquainted with the biology could see a leg of fly and bacteria in the oral cavity through the microscopes. And for those who were interested in chemistry, the JAS specialists demonstrated the Landolt reaction, when iodine and starch interact. As a result of this chemical process, the liquid in the container becomes firstly blue, and then again becomes transparent. Also, they made chemical fake blood and demonstrated how you can pierce a balloon with a skewer and it will remain inflated.

There were also experiments that could be carried out at home - they demonstrated how to make a lava lamp with water, oil, dye, soda and vinegar. They also acquainted children with capillary effect. For this, several glasses were placed, some of them were filled with liquid, and the ones next to them were empty. There were napkins in all the glasses that connected them together. After some time, the liquid from the full glasses gradually passed into the empty ones.

Young spectators of the scientific show were impressed with incredible experiments, which seemed to be magic at first sight. So a scientific picnic brought science closer to children and helped them to find answers to those questions that can only be learned from practitioners.
