I’m a Scientist facilitates the dialog between experts from the scientific community and students, thus providing insights into current research and everyday work.
The thematic round “Infections”
At I'm a Scientist, this round of topic was all about “Infections”. Students had the opportunity to investigate many exciting questions such as:
- What are the most dangerous infectious diseases?
- How do viruses develop?
- Are there also good viruses?
- What is the difference between parasites, viruses, and bacteria?
And of course many more questions! Between September 26 and October 7, the children and young adults entered into direct dialog with the researchers in live chats and via the questions on the I'm a Scientist website. The scientists answered questions about their current research, their daily work, and also had exciting stories to tell about their lives and careers.
