The children wore different colour T-shirts to represent the DNA letters A,C,G,T and were guided to show DNA dividing and combining by staff from the department and Evelien Bosch, a presenter from ZappLive.

Three 'For Infinity' exhibitions

For Infinity comprises 3 exhibitions: 400 years of science in the Aa church, 400 years of student life in the Groninger Museum and 4 centuries of artwork in the University Museum. They are independent exhibitions, but together they tell the bigger story of academic life in Groningen. There's something for everyone!
