The students will be presented with basic information on the upcoming changes to the definitions of the International System of Units (SI) as well as a short history of metrology with a special emphasis on the signing of the “Metre Convention”.
The students will also be presented with the national measurement standards and attend simple measurement procedures in national calibration laboratories in the field of metrology of mass, pressure, length, electrical quantities, temperature, time and frequency, volume as well as the Laboratory for Electrical Power.
In an effort to mark the celebration of World Metrology Day, the Bureau of Metrology has been organizing this event for six years now.
In addition to the traditionally organized “Open Days”, an awards ceremony will be held for 36 students competing in groups in a great prize contest “The Beauty of Crystals”. The competition in crystal growth will last 5 months and it is intended for 7th, 8th and 9th grade students from elementary schools, as well as for high school students of all grades. The aim of this competition is the affirmation of science, with a particular focus on chemistry and crystallography as well as drawing attention to the impact of accurate measurements on science.
