Where?

This event was held at Politecnico di Milano

Who?

Our ESRs Susanna and Ricardo showed their work to around 80 people of all ages.

What?

Experiments for adults and children were organised in the Leonardo da Vinci Square, in the heart of Politecnico di Milano main campus, on the chemistry of colours, odours and enzymes. In addition, guided tours to the laboratories of the Chemistry Department were held, mainly aimed at high school students and adults. The LABS (Susanna’s and Ricardo’s host institution) took part in these tours, where our ESRs had the opportunity to show their activities on stents and blood oxygenators, among the other topics covered in the laboratory (from microfluidics to biomaterials).
