Organizing outreach activities is an important way for MERLN to show to non-scientists who we are and what we are working on. We realize that the work of scientists sometimes seems like a bit of a black box and often people will only hear about new discoveries and exciting prospects in the news. That is why we want to involve people more, for example, by visiting schools to give interesting lectures and demonstrations, inviting school classes for a hands-on day in the lab, and organizing open days to offer you an opportunity to get to know our institute.
During all of our activities, we want to show that science is fun and fascinating!
Check out our upcoming events to see what activities we are involved in and when you can meet us!
The members of MERLN's outreach team are Mireille Sthijns, Dennie Hebels, Nadia Roumans, Sabine van Rijt and Matt Baker.
