The Church of Sciences

12 June 2013

The Church of Sciences: from magic to energy! During the Night of Arts and Sciences the Der Aa-Kerk was transformed by ScienceLinX, the science centre of the University of Groningen, into the Church of Sciences. The many attractions included HUMANergy, Material Matters, E-tpas (edible solar cells), Knikkerbuizen (marble tubes) and the DebatLabb with Hans Clevers, president of the KNAW, the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences.

The weekly online video magazine Unifocus highlights topics related to the University of Groningen in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization.
