The visits, organized under the name «How does the scientific method work? Let’s study biomedicine!» seek to stimulate creativity and the capacity to reason among students aged between 10 and 12 and thereby broaden their education.

During this activity – between 10 and 12:30 h – students participate in a workshop-theatre in which two crazy scientists invite them to perform experiments following the scientific method while they talk about the functions of cells, DNA and genes. Finally, the students visit PCB facilities where they have first-hand experience of laboratories and become acquainted with the day-to-day life of a researcher.
