Student projects

To get an idea of the science communication products and research that is possible, below are a few examples of student projects of recent years.

Final Projects SCS Fundamentals

During the final weeks of the course SCS Fundamentals students work in groups on actual science communication products for clients within the science faculty. Below is a list of a few examples:

  • Mathematics Walk (“Wiskundewandeling”);
  • Demonstration about the science behind ice skating;
  • A guide to Martian landscapes on Earth; about the Mars analogue sites of the MASE research project;
  • “Oogstmania”, a game about global food safety for the Hortus Botanicus as part of the EU project Big Picnic.
  • A new interactive route to the Old Observatory.
  • A lesson plan about antibiotics for elementary schools.

Student research projects

As part of their internships, SCS students conduct a science communication research study. Below are a few examples of student research projects.
