UniStem Day is renewed for the twelfth time!! On March 6 – 2020, the largest scientific research event dedicated to high school students returns to 101 Universities and Research Centers.
Great news: for the first time UniStem Day crosses the borders of Europe and unites students from 3 continents. From Medellin in Colombia through Coimbra, Bonn, Athens and Milan in Europe, to Melbourne in Australia.
UniStem Day is a one-day meeting organized for high school students since 2009. This event, solely dedicated to the dissemination and outreach of stem cell science and research, provides an opportunity to foster learning, discovery and debate on the themes of knowledge and innovation starting from stem cell research. The event showcases cutting edge research, paints a picture of the daily work of a scientist, and explores the mechanisms behind scientific breakthroughs, including the cultural expectations.
By offering lessons, debates, visits at the laboratories and recreational moments, the students engage with the concepts and methodologies involved in stem cell research. Furthermore, they will gain an appreciation for science and how it can be fun and build personal character and relationships based on evidence, perseverance and integrity.
As with previous years, UNISTEM DAY 2020 will bring together Universities and High Schools from all over the world by involving 101 Universities in Australia, Austria, Colombia, France, Germany, Greece, Holland, Hungary, Italy, Spain, Poland, Portugal and Sweden.
