Cooperation with schools

RECETOX has maintained a long tradition of cooperating with high schools through its own events (excursions, seminars, workshops) and participation in public events organized by other entities (MjUNI, Bioskop, Researchers' Night, Brno Health Days and many others). We inform students about current scientific topics associated with the environment and motivate them to pursue higher education in the natural sciences (STEM).

For high school students we offer:  

  • guided lab tours at RECETOX - usually including an introductory lecture and then a visit to the laboratories (length: 2 hours)
  • lectures at high schools (especially for 3rd and 4th year high-school students) - according to teachers' choice (length of the lecture 45-90 min)
  • student workshops „RECETOX hands-on“ - takes place once a year for 3rd and 4th year students (from January to February)
  • topics of high school scientific activities (so called SOČ).

We offer various lectures and seminars also in foreign languages, especially in English, but some also in German, French, Italian etc.
