Baylab 2019: 6,000 participants, 6,000 smiles, another successful edition
For Baylab, May is Science Month. Between May 6th and 24th, 2019, little scientists from Romania and the Republic of Moldova visited the Laboratories in Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca, Timişoara, Iaşi, Constanţa and Chişinău to enjoy an exciting educational experience.
The concept behind the 6th edition, a national premiere, gathered under Baylab umbrella interactive and instructive activities for students in both elementary and middle school years.
How we did it?
In 160 experiments sessions, the youngest visitors had the opportunity to learn more about plants, insects and their fundamental role for nature and humans’ life alike. At the end of each session, the participants were handed diplomas and other educational resources to be used in class.
Their older colleagues, in the 5th – 8th grades, teamed up with volunteers of Caravana cu Medici Association and Romanian Red Cross – Timiş Branch for first-aid courses, to discover the right CPR techniques and busted myths related to the most common hazards, like nose bleedings or choking.
