The students of LTH (Faculty of Engineering, Lund University) follow their tradition and offer an advent calendar for laymen. Just like the years before, a video is presented every day where a team of enthusiastic students perform a simple experiment and explain their observations.
LTHs Julkalender (In Swedish)
Advent Calendars are extremely popular in Scandinavia and comes in many shapes and sizes (too many, some people think!): wall calendars, candy calendars, church calendars, blogs, radio shows, television shows … During a couple of years, some Swedish universities have presented calendars for laymen, but the most solid performance comes from LTH who are extremely enthusiastic about the concept.
Disclaimer: This post has nothing to do with the fact that I am a proud diploma engineer (”civilingenjör”) who graduated from LTH – or as we say in Swedish: Lunds Tekniska Högskola – in the late eighties.
