You call it playing, we call it doing experiments.

With "PiA - Physics in advent", we created a special and unique kind of advent calendar: a physical advent calendar. We introduce young scientists, and everyone who has fun with it, to 24 simple and yet ingenious experiments and physics puzzles. They will arouse interest in doing experiments for yourself and ignite excitement within any observer.

From 1st to 24th December 2015, we present a little experiment as video clip every day. You can do the experiment yourself at home and answer the question on our web page throughout the day before seeing the solution video the next day.

Eligible are students in school years 5 to 10, complete school classes and entire schools in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and any other country. Join-in and win!

In addition to fun with experiments you can also win prizes. We draw prizes among the best participants in the categories individuals, and in addition among the best school classes and schools. Furthermore, every participant or every participating team or class receives a certificate with their achievements for download and print-out. Participation in "PiA - Physics in Advent" is free.

We are komm mach MINT and were awarded Innovationspreis 2015
