A science faire was held on May 22nd in Ternopol – IV at Theater Square. The goal of the event was to popularize science among young people and excite the next generation of scientists in Ukraine.
There were about a dozen tents where schools and universities demonstrated scientific experiments in chemistry, biology and physics to the public. Students of the Faculty of Chemical and Biological (http://chem-bio.com.ua), part of Ternopil Volodymyr Hnatyuk National Pedagogical University, http://tnpu.edu.ua) presented PhotosynQ, created by scientists at Michigan State University.
Schoolchildren, students, and young scientists had the opportunity to personally touch science in the truest sense of the word. With the device MultispeQ, anyone could measure the progress of biophysical processes otherwise invisible to the eye in leaves of Phaseolus vulgaris plants and share data throughout the world via the PhotosynQ platform.
The interest and excitement generated at this event shows that science can be very interesting and exciting thing that unites the world.
