RECETOX cooperates with secondary schools for a long time, through its own events (excursions, seminars, workshops) and by participating in events for the public organized by others (Bioskop, Researchers' Night, Festival of Science, Brno Days for Health and many other activities). It's essential to inform students and teachers about current scientific knowledge related to the environment and also to motivate students to pursue higher education in science.
For teachers and secondary school students we offer:

A huge amount of chemicals of both natural and anthropogenic origin is around us. Some of these can cause environmental problems and/or affect human health. Join us for a closer look at these chemicals.
Currently, a number of pesticides are used in conventional agriculture for plant protection, disease control or weed control. On the other hand, some of these pesticides are suspected of having adverse effects on both the environment and organisms, including humans. Would you like to know more about pesticides? Then we invite you to a workshop where we will explore the issue in detail.
We will talk not only about pesticides, but also about the legislation that is supposed to protect us, the consumers. And, of course, we'll go into the laboratory. Using the QuEChERS extraction method, we will obtain a tomato extract in which pesticides can be measured. Finally, we will also process and interpret the data so that we can compare the amount of pesticides in tomatoes from the garden, supermarket, market or certified organic.
