CHEMISTRY IN ENGLISH—THE END OF ADAMED SMARTUP’S YEAR-LONG SEMINAR
26 June 2020
The cycle of “Science Through English” workshops, organized as a part of our ADAMED SmartUP Programme, has ended last Saturday. The year-long advanced chemistry course consisted of 9 weekend meetings, conducted entirely in English. The project was co-financed by the capital city of Warsaw.
“Science Through English” seminar was run simultaneously in two groups, physicochemical and biochemical, depending on the main interest of the participants. The lectures and practical classes were taught by scientists with extensive Polish and international experience.
“During the workshops, the youth did not only get to know advanced material in the field of chemistry, physics and biology, but also had the opportunity to learn about the scientific “craftsmanship,” dealing with designing and conducting an experiment, noting down the entailed observations, and effectively interpreting the results of the performed study. An important element of the classes was to introduce the participants to the tools and software used in daily research work, as well as to hold practical classes that culminated the winter semester,” says Martyna Strupczewska, the ADAMED SmartUP Programme Manager.
In total, 59 students from Warsaw high schools have participated in the “Science Through English” seminar. Due to sanitary restrictions, the second semester of the course was held online.
We would like to thank all the students for their active participation, both in the last few weeks and throughout the rest of the year. At the same time, we encourage you to follow our channels on social media, where we regularly post about interesting, new activities of ADAMED SmartUP that are dedicated to young science enthusiasts.
