Realfagdagene, literally “The Science Days”, is an event arranged by Delta, the association for physics and mathematics students at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). The event will take place at NTNU in Trondheim from the 9 th through the 11th of March 2017.
The goal of the Trondheim Science Week is to encourage and inspire passion for the natural sciences. We want to motivate students to build their careers in science and technology, based on curiosity and fascination around both manmade and natural wonders, ranging from the origins of life to the exploration of space and the cosmos. We also intend to involve highschool students from all over the country, in order to motivate them to study science.
We have invited seminar holders from around the world, from Nobel laureates to popular “science youtubers”. Last year’s event featured cosmologist Lawrence Krauss and NASA's Stefanie Milam, amongst others. This year, we have also invited doctorial fellows at NTNU to present their research projects at a reasearch exhibition. In addition, there will be chances for businesses and research institutions to present the opportunities that they offer for mathematicians, physicists, chemists, biologists, geologists etc. We wish that these businesses will reflect and promote the spirit of natural science, futureoriented research and innovation.
The Trondheim Science Week is open not only to physics and mathematics students, but to all students of NTNU. The event is organized exclusively by volunteers and is a nonprofitable event. In the case of any surpluses, these will be donated to Delta’s excursion committee to help fund the excursion for the physics and mathematics students in the third year of their bachelor degree.

Shown here are three concentric cylinders, each comprised of many silicon strip detetectors (the bronze-coloured rectangular devices, similar to the CCDs used in digital cameras). These surround the region where the protons collide. (© CERN). Realfagsdagene do not own this image.
