Meet the centre at the Danish Science Festival

Wednesday 05 Apr 17
DTU Lyngby holds an open campus in relation to the Danish Science Festival. You can also meet the Danish Hydrocarbon Research and Technology Centre (DHRTC) who has an interactive stand where you can try to recover oil from chalk.

Thursday the 25th of April from 17 to 21 o’clock, DTU holds an open campus during which children, the young and the grown-ups can watch spectacular physics and chemistry experiments, learn about plasma physics, see a wind car, make your own soap, work with cryptology, recover oil from calk and last but not least have a look around in some of DTU’s new buildings.

At the centre’s stand, you will see how the oil is found in the chalk and try to recover oil by using water to get the oil out. 90% of the Danish oil comes from chalk which is underneath the sea floor of the North Sea. Part of the chalk is like chalk you find at e.g. Stevns Klint.

The Danish Science Festival at DTU, there will be lectures, guided tours, shows, stands and hands-on activities at campus. Find the programme at

It will be possible to buy food at campus so bring your family and get an experience beyond the usual and get smarter together.

The event is for free and sig-up is not required.
