Project description

This project facilitates the public, from the age of 8 years onwards, to actively experience the power of the scientific method (observation and critical thinking). The participants experience how misleading our eyes are, the power of the other senses, and how important it is to use as much sences at once as possible in order to make an objective observation. During the endgame, contestants have to combine their observation skills with their ability to think critically, hence getting a feel of the power of the scientific method.
