Members of the Young Academy Groningen worked closely with each other, other University researchers, clinicians and scholars, Science LinX and the RUG Scholierenacademie to provide fun and exciting educational activities for children of all ages. Because of this collaboration, visitors were able to engage in activities that covered a range of disciplines—from arts and languages, geography, robotics, theology, to chemistry and medicine—and spanned scales from the molecule to the universe!

The day’s activities included:

This event closely aligned with the missions and identity of Young Academy Groningen. Not only were members able to enhance collaboration between different disciplines within and outside of the University, but they also explored a new approach for connecting academia and society in Groningen. By giving children the opportunity to explore various academic fields, the Young Academy Groningen hopes to have sparked the next young scholar and love of knowledge…after all, Knowledge is King!
