Summer in Science 2018 has involved 16 4th-year Italian upper secondary school students at the EMBL Research Campus in Monterotondo (RM) for a 2-weeks program (from June 11th to June 22nd, 2018):
– during the first week, students engaged in activities aimed at developing basic knowledge and skills needed to conduct basic molecular biology experiments. This training, provided by Adamas Scienza Science Educators, is key to acquire awareness and trust on the basic requirements of laboratory work, but it is also an opportunity to explore learning of Science in an informal context and to collectively elaborate on science relations with individuals and societies.
– during the second week students have been introduced to real laboratory life, hosted by supporting research groups who shared with them goals, strategies and methodologies adopted in each lab.
The programme has been enriched by several group activities aimed at promoting integration and collaboration among students.
During the weekend the students also took part in a visit to the capital and were able to enjoy some relaxation at the swimming pool of the residence where they were staying.
The exchanges with the researchers of the Campus were facilitated by the organization of an aperitif and the final dinner attended by many of the tutors who followed the students in the second week of internship in the laboratory.
