The first physics festival in Latvia takes place
This year, our Young Minds section participated in the first ever physics festival in Latvia - an event solely for the popularization of physics and science for the public. Almost all groups that do physics outreach were gathered in the same venue - which means our team was also their. Multiple experiment workshops were set up, and a competition for middle-schoolers also took place. The event was a success, as the amount of visitors from the general public attending went up to a few thousand.
The event was well covered - it garnered enough attention for some TV and radio coverage. Feedback from the public was very positive, and that means this will be no one hit wonder - another festival for physics is in the works for next year, and our section will certainly attend next year as well.
