“Scientists without Borders

PREMUROSA participated in Researchers’ Night

Four ESRs from PREMUROSA promoted Science to youngsters and their families at the event held by Università del Piemonte Orientale (UPO). Elżbieta Pańczyszyn, Ilijana Kovrlija, Ksenia Menshikh, and Hugo Abreu prepared fun tasks to light a spark for Science in children. Teams competed in assembling a full-size skeleton as fast as possible and created their first lung model from plastic bottles, straws and balloons.

The XVI edition of the Researchers’ Night held by UPO took place in Alessandria, Italy, on October 15th. ESRs collaborated with Prof. Diego Cotella to create different activities engaging the young generation in Science simply and interactively. As Benjamin Franklin once said: “Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn”. The feedback from the future generation of scientists and their parents was very positive, as well as from ESRs themselves who were happy to share their work. “It was truly a pleasure to be involved in the event and to help promote the PREMUROSA project, UPO and Science itself to the community of Alessandria.” – says Hugo. Even without speaking Italian fluently, the ESRs showed that Science has no borders and that its language is universal!
