A new edition of free-of-charge workshops for young scientists is soon to be launched at the Warsaw University of Technology
17 September 2019
Registration is now open for our science workshops to be organized as part of the SmartUP Academy for students aged 15-19 who are passionate about physical and natural sciences. All the classes will be taught at the Faculty of Chemistry of the Warsaw University of Technology and participation is free of charge. We will also refund the cost of transport to those attendees who are planning to travel from locations that are 50+ kilometres away from Warsaw.
The autumn edition will be an excellent opportunity to expand your knowledge of electrochemical reactions and micro-organisms as well as learning about innovative techniques of explosives trace detection. The first workshop focusing on modern drug design and biotechnological drug development strategies will be held on 12 October.
