The introductory lecture
Visitors had the opportunity to see and control humanoid robots, an automated carwash system, a self-balancing unicycle named “Skočko”, an electric car and a tricycle, as well as many smartphone and tablet applications including ones with augmented reality. All visitors could play an optical air guitar, see the world through a thermal camera, compute on analogue computers and try or view many other inventions and technologies developed at the Faculty and presented at the Festival.

Practical demonstrations and laboratory visits gave the opportunity to see a demonstration of wireless energy transfer using a Tesla transformer, how to make objects levitate, antenna measurements inside an anechoic chamber, an unmanned submarine, a renewable energy system and Internet traffic behaviour during MMORPG gaming.
Top Faculty experts gave lectures about science achievements within the Faculty. Visitors were able learn about the beauty of fractals, hear about the latest research achievements in laser and plasma physics, gravity, cosmology, hypernuclear physics, nanoscience, quantum computing, nuclear energetics. They were also thought about the history and philosophy of both physics and science. The Department of Applied Computing presented a system for tracking wolves.

Many of our most active student organisations: eSTUDENT, IEEE, SUPEUS, BEST, KSET, EESTEC and SUBOS demonstrated that studying at the Faculty is not just about learning, but also a way ofcooperating on many exciting extracurricular activities. There are plenty of activities to choose, from joining one of the Faculties successful sport teams, start-up groups, various competitions or internships to various professional and scientific workgroups, which work on topics like energy efficiency during your studies. The opportunities are certainly vast, while the goals are achieved through unity and fun.
