With the combined efforts of Academicians, young scholars and uploaders, a magnificent scientific event was presented to the public.

The Public Science Day enables viewers to get close to science and physics, learn about the knowledge of physics, feel scientific research at zero distance, and understand that science is not unreachable but reflected in all aspects of our daily life. This year, IOP and Bilibili cooperated again, hoping to introduce science in such a way that the public, especially teenagers, feel more attracted to, so as to encourage people to participate more in the activities, and truly make scientific knowledge popular.
