For the sixth year in a row, a group of ambitious secondary school pupils, university students, teachers and scientists spent the final days of the summer holidays in Rijeka’s classrooms, lecture halls and chemical laboratories.
As was the case last year, two chemistry summer schools were held instead of the usual one: Chemistry Summer School for students, hosted by the Department of Biotechnology of the University of Rijeka, and Chemistry Summer School for secondary school pupils, hosted by the Rijeka Secondary School of Natural Sciences and Graphic Arts.
This is a one-of-a-kind programme intended for those who want to expand their knowledge of chemistry and develop practical skills in laboratory work. The project leader, Assoc. Prof. Tomislav Portada, PhD, from the Ruđer Bošković Institute, said this year saw a record number of registrations.
JGL supported this valuable project by providing free tickets and guided tours of the JGL Museum of Pharmacy. Visitors enjoyed the exhibits and rated the information they learned from Marin Pintur, the head of the Museum, as extremely valuable for their further education and general knowledge.
