Travelling scientists

Short description

Travelling Scientists is a volunteering project of the Biotechnology Students Association which aims at popularising science among pre and early school children. The project is performed by carrying out interactive workshops and experiments in kindergartens and elementary schools. Encouraged by the fact that there is not enough practical work and experiments in elementary schools, students design experiments to capture the most important basic concepts in biology, chemistry and physics. The project has been carried out for 8 years with constant positive feedback from all parties engaged.
