Kick-off Leiden Science Online Meet-ups: Illusions show
Are you sure that the choices you make are of free will? Can your mind be read? Can you feel someone's touch when they are not in the same room as you? In this online show full of stories, interaction and humour, mind illusionist Jochem Nooyen will take you to the boundaries of science and illusion and in between. After the show, break-out rooms will be opened for those who would like to have a chat.

About the Leiden Science Online Meet-ups
Missing having lunch at the faculty, talking informally in between lectures or randomly running into people and having a chat at the coffee machine? Most of us do! Let's not wait until September (or longer) to get our social campus life back, let's make an effort to meet-up online and stay connected. A weekly social online get-together will be held on Thursdays at 16:30: the Leiden Science Online Meet-ups.
Online socialising: we can do this!
Yet another Zoom meeting... Well yes, the Leiden Science Online Meet-up will be yet another Zoom meeting but with the aim to really meet each other, talk to each other in small groups and, basically, end the day with a smile and the feeling you have connected with other people. The Leiden Science Meet-ups are open to students and staff from the Faculty of Science.
Because online socialising is, to say the least, awkward, each meet-up will have an interactive show, game or talk to start with. During this first part, you will occasionally be put into small groups with a fun, easy-going task or be asked to otherwise interact with other.
Have a conversation or play a game
All meetups will end with break-out rooms in which you can play a game, meet with people you know or join a conversation with people you just met. The break-out rooms with have topics or purposes. Feel free to walk in or out of a room or ask for a specific break out room to be made where you can arrange to meet up with fellow-students or other people you already know.
