On 2nd and 3rd September, the Institute of Biomaterials took part in the initiative “Girls/boys and technology” (“Mädchen/Jungen und Technik”) at FAU aiming to attract the interest of children to science and technology topics, specially showing examples of experimental / laboratory work carried out by scientists. In our Institute, children received lectures and carried out experimental activities (how to make a scaffold, wettability test on electrospun mats with food colors, light microscopy and SEM analysis) around the topic: “Electrospinning for wound dressing” under supervision of: Dr. L. Liverani, Dr. J. Will, Ms. K. Schuhladen and Ms. L. Vogt were the researchers in charge.
