Popularization activities for students and public
Workers of our department regularly participate in campaigns which aim is to outline the science, scientific knowledge and what is behing the research scenes to wide professional and lay public. The main effort is fosuced to young generations – students of various types of schools as potential new scientists.
We take part in campaigns run by The Czech Academy of Science, universities and another scientific institutions like national Science Festivals (Festivaly vědy, e.g. regular Week of Science and Technology “Týden vědy a techniky” in November), exhibitions or self-organised regional events. With respect to scientific orientation most of the popularization activities are connected with water (water ecology, occurrence of cyanobacteria and water bloom events, water purification, drinking water treatment) and water biota, too, especially phytoplankton.
Prezentations are performed in a form of lectures, exhibitions or excursions at our department, in exhibition centres or directly in the field.
