LAM at CHeMoUK & A day in the life of a scientist 2020

Researchers from the Laboratory for Advanced Materials participated in the CHeMoUK summer school for high school students at the Faculty of Natural Sciences during Aug 27 – 31, 2020.

LAM designed and sponsored a laboratory excercise for the CHeMoUK summer school, where the students could fabricate and test a functional solar cell. The program of the summer school also included a „Day in the life of a scientist”, providing students with an opportunity to experience research work in the actual scientific laboratory. Dr. Lukáš Petra and Mgr. Ivana Božeková of LAM guided students in preparation and characterization of metal nanoparticles. At the end of the CHeMoUK summer school, students presented their work to their student colleagues during a miniconference.
