Science without communication is pretty useless. This pertains to communication within the scientific community as well as communication with society, usually the major sponsor of basic research.
We take efforts in explaining to the non-scientific audience what we do in the lab and why it matters. Particularly, we address young kids and high school students who embody the next generation of scientists and innovators. Different means of outreach include:
- Workshops and talks at high schools (Young Science Ambassador program)
- Acceptance of high school student internships
- Contributions to the public Long Night of Research in Vienna
- Youngscience.at Themenplattform (thesis database for Austrian high school students)
High school interns in the Bergthaler lab (2012- )
Long Night of Research. April 4 2014
