JRC Open Doors Day at Ispra 12/05/2007
The traditional Open Doors Day in Ispra, coinciding this year with the celebrations of the 50th anniversary of the Treaties of Rome, turned out to become the biggest such JRC event ever. An enthusiastic crowd of all age groups, including many children and teenagers, took the opportunity to find out what the JRC scientists are working on in fields ranging from renewable energies and environmental protection to biodiversity and earth observation. Many live demonstrations and practical experiments provided for first-hand experiences in state-of-the-art science and children had fun extracting DNA from tomatoes or racing solar-powered model cars.
