YOUth @ the Universiteitsmuseum
Today the University Museum hosted a special “Meet-the-scientist”-event for which YOUth was invited. Visitors could ask everything about science, development and the brain. For YOUth, it was a great opportunity to promote our study, share our ideas and insights with the general public, and try to recruit participants. Matthijs Vink manned the YOUth booth this time. Children could participate in several experiments, and the workings of (f)MRI, EEG, and the brain were explained. Both children and their parents were very interested and appreciated being able to talk to scientists about questions they had regarding their own child as well as development in general.
