21 Science Picnic

On June 3rd 2017, our Institute participated in the 21 Science Picnic of Polish Radio and the Copernicus Science Centre, this year dedicated to “Earth”.

In our stand (F02), organized by doctoral students of MMRC PAS, the audiences of various ages attended scientific presentations entitled: “Earth in micro-scale:  1) what and in which ways is cultured by scientists in our labs? 2) How the cells look like? Could they be useful in medical research? 3) The smartest cells of our body. “ Among others,  children had the opportunity to make the culture medium and to seed cells in aseptic hood, to  examine neurons under light microscopy system, to colour and take away  the small replica of human brain, as well as the self-made model of myelinated neuron. We hope that all visitors had a chance to broaden their knowledge about organization of scientific laboratory, as well about nervous system structure and functioning, and generally had a good time, what could be seen on the pictures taken during presentations.
