Science&Art@School

Science&Art@School is a project to inspire young students with the cooperation of science and art through a three-day interdisciplinary workshop. Day one: The workshop starts with an introduction to modern physics with emphasis upon particle physics. Days two and three: the focus point is contemporary art reflecting upon science.

At the end of the workshop the students‘ artwork installation is presented during a public vernissage.
