Science comes to life for 100 secondary school students


The annual Science Carousel took place in RU recently. The event is organised by RU in cooperation with a secondary school each year. 

The carousel, named Hringekjan in Icelandic, aims to bring science to life for students in the 9th and 10th grades. RU hosts three different workshops over a period of three weeks. The focus of these workshops is to show the many ways technology can be used to create, innovate, and solve different problems.

100 pupils from Hateigsskoli secondary school participated this year. They attended workshops and courses in computer science, artificial intelligence and engineering, measuring jump force, and making their own electric motor. In charge of the workshops were professors from the School of Science and Engineering and the School of Computer Science. After completing the course, students receive a certificate confirming their participation.
