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

From 1st to 24th December 2015, we present a little experiment in a 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.
