Successful premiere for caesar public lab

Great success for our very first workshop in our newly established public lab. Caesar opened its door for pupils and teachers in order to give an insight into the research conducted at caesar within the walls of our public lab.

The pupils learned about the field of neuroethology with the example of the zebrafish larvae. How does the zebrafish larvae look like under the microscope and what are the different developmental stages?

Simple behavioural experiments were performed and documented, giving an insight into the work of a scientist. Via interactive hands-on activities the children got an understanding into the world of neuroscience, specifically how neurons do communicate with each other.

We are very pleased that everyone had such a great time at our workshop and we are looking forward to welcoming pupils and their teachers in the near future. Dr. Mia von Scheven, Educational Outreach Officer
