 Brief description of your activity focus
Fostering creativity in young people in natural sciences and technology.

 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
The PSC promotes fundamental and applied research in the plant sciences. We seek creative approaches to research mentoring and coursework for students and postdocs, and we provide platforms for interactions with peers, policymakers, industry and stakeholders. We have a developed outreach program with workshops and exhibitions integrating natural sciences, design, technology and arts. We have initiated a public art-science experiment about climate change which is currently travelling to universities, botanical gardens and schools.
We are interested in engaging children and youth with natural sciences by means of tinkering workshops and maker spaces. We are experts in art-science and in developing interactive informal learning activities.
