PUBLIC ENGAGEMENT EVENTS
“Science is Wonderful” featured an array of fun, educational online activities that introduce visitors to the latest cutting-edge research taking place throughout Europe and the rest of the world. We presented NEWCOTIANA with several infographics and a live Q&A session with our scientists.
Newcotiana and MycoSynVac work with new biotechnologies that can be applied in agriculture. They investigate new technologies in order to solve current problems. “Farms of the Future” is a participatory event that brings these two synthetic biology projects out of the labs and present them in a way which can be explored experimentally, playfully and artistically.
“Battle for Cattle” is a fun game where players learn everything about diseases, treatment, bacteria and viruses. The game is designed specifically for children’s education in vaccines and synthetic biology. We organised several workshop formats to be able to interact with children from various ages using our game.
Together with participants, we put together different courses in our Science Kitchen Lab, learned about the different methods and ingredients and – of course – sampled and tasted all the different recipes!
Does standardised food taste better? Does it look better?
