You simply can’t miss this this year in The Science Zone – big name stars are coming your way!

There is a place at Pyrkon where you can see for yourself how thin the line is between fantasy and science. It is in the Science Zone that you will learn whether time travel is possible, whether teleportation is within our reach, and gain knowledge on many other topics – from ecology to online safety to the mysteries of the night sky. Are you curious about what we have prepared for you this year?

The Science Station

The Science Station is an amazing place in the Science Zone that will provide you with the opportunity to meet and talk with our invited guests and speakers – specialists in a wide variety of scientific branches. If after the lecture you are still bothered by various questions, and for some reason you did not ask them during the lecture, now you will have an ideal opportunity to exchange a few words with the speaker, dispelling your doubts and expanding your knowledge in the field of your interest. 

You will find the Science Station on the first floor of the PCC Hall, so don’t hestitate to go there and don’t be shy to reach for knowledge!

Koło Naukowe Inżynierów Transportu Publicznego and a locomotive simulator

Do you dream of a career as a train driver? Do you want to prove yourself in driving a train? Are you bored with playing with toy locomotives? That’s great, because at this year’s Pyrkon – in the Science Zone (first floor of the PCC hall, next to the Science Station) – there will be an engine driver’s cab simulator, so you’ll find out that driving a train is a tricky business. Try not to get derailed and make it to your destination on time! 

Copper smelter

Last year, the Copper smelter were a blast, so we have great news for you – it will also appear in an updated form at this year’s Pyrkon! If you are curious about how the sword with which Achilles killed Hector was created, you won’t find a better opportunity to learn. At the Copper smelter, you will also test yourself by working in the mini-quarry, try smelting copper and bronze using a simple smelting furnace, and learn to make copper jewelry that will please any magpie out there! 

You will find the copper smelter exactly where it was located a year ago – under the open sky, on the way from hall 5A to 8A. This is one you can’t miss!

And if you are interested in the issue of online security, you can’t miss what Piotr Konieczny and Marcin Maj – creators of the portal – have prepared for you. Not only will there be an interesting lecture, but also a number of activities (including an opportunity to practice lockpicking!) at a booth on the first floor of the PCC Hall (next to the Science Station).
