We are passionate about science, and enjoy passing on our enthusiasm to children and youngsters. Our institutes offer a wide range of activities for primary and high school students. School groups are often welcomed on guided tours of our institutes. On Girls’ Day, we give girls a glimpse of how exciting a career in science can be.
