We started our popularization activities for year 2022

Students from 6th to 8th grades with their teachers from Montessori school ZŠ Andílek (Prague 5) visited J. Heyrovský Institute.
The program included two workshops (I) Extraction of DNA from plant material and (II) Microscopic observation of the preparation (chemical reactions such as copper silver displacement, crystallization of CuSO4 from saturated solution, DNA precipitation,....). During the excursions our young scientists introduced the research in the field of nanotechnology and nanomaterials in the laboratory of the Department of Nanocatalysis, and Hitachi electron microscope lab.
The program was provided by scientists popularizing the PEXED team: K. Stejskalová, L. Šimaňok, M. Vaidulych and R. Nebel.
