Workshops are offered about the following topics:

  • Immune system (by Kartikeya Singh, in English)

Get-to-know the immune system by trying out different signals to activate specific immune cells. Will you find the right combination?

  • Fluid dynamics (by Marix-Alix Dalle, in French and English)

Understand the utility of mini brains via a role-playing game: You get to play your favorite brain cell!

All workshops are related to topics covered in the science comic “LUX:plorations – A Universe of Research”, which is supported by the Luxembourg National Research Fund (FNR). An exhibition of Volume 2 can also be visited at the Luxembourg Learning Centre. The creation of the workshops was supported by the Doctoral School of Science and Engineering (DSSE) of the University of Luxembourg and supervised by the Luxembourg Science Centre.
