Science LinX is the science centre of the Faculty of Mathematics and Natural Sciences at the University of Groningen. We feel it is important to be part of a University and have access to cutting edge science and top scientists. Our vision for science communication is published in Spokes Magazine, published by the European network of science centres and museums Ecsite.
‘Science centres and museums come in all shapes and sizes. Some target the very young, aiming to instill a sense of wonder, with colorful and spectacular exhibits. Others focus on history, showing collections sometimes built over centuries. Still others invite the public to be part of science itself, which science centres based at, run by or born from universities like Science LinX, the Science Gallery and Universum seem particularly well placed to do. Are they shaping the future of science centres at large?’
