We are really passionate about science. It is what keeps us going, and it is fundamentally the reason this lab exists.

We also really like to share this passion with people, and that is why we try to organise and participate in many outreach events.

Here are some of the things we got up to…

Outreach Event in Italy organised by”La Via Delle Scienze

October 19th 2018

The fantastic Folks at the “La Via delle Scienze” organised an entire day of public engagement and Science divulgation were Andrea got  to chat with high school students about what is it like to be a scientist and why is it important to adopt a scientific outlook in the world. It was a really fun day, and we had a lot of fun chatting about making brains in a dish, the super powers our brains grant us, and how to spot real Science from pseudo-science.

 

After that, Andrea gave a talk about the science going on in the lab to an auditorium packed with Science enthusiasts (video linked below -sorry, it’s in italian!)

It was an amazing experience and we were thrilled to be able to interact with the organisers, the audience and most of all the students.
