Field research – a bit differently. Or, how to endear science to children

This video shows the results of the project titled: Living health – do we know what is toxic/dangerous and what isn’t?. The project is co-financed by Mestna občina Celje. We present the researcher/scientist work in the field, which comprises of sampling and interpretation of the results – in a fun, kid-oriented way, suitable for children from 7-11 years old.

The basic aim of this project is to encourage the children to be curious about healthy living and try to see what it means for them. We present the ecotoxicology, through the healthy plants, organisms that are able to purify the toxins and to teach about the typical pollutants.

We aim to upgrade the knowledge given in the last two years, where we built certain awareness about the medicines as waste, endocrine pollutants and the successful use of plants, found in our vicinity.
