This year´s Global Science Opera is all about the ocean, sustainability and climate change.

This week was the very last gathering for the CREATIONS project. “My” project, the Global Science Opera” is a flag-ship project in this giant EU-funded 3-year international collaboration.

Monday, May 21st, 2018

Going to England, is like going home. And perhaps especially this time, as my whole family were travelling there as well!  Its actually been some time since I´ve been in England, and it was long over-due! England has a special place in my heart, and I could easily live here. Anyway, I traveled to Exeter […]

Global Hands On Ocean pilot

Friday, April 20th, 2018

How do you combine the fields of science and arts, where both subjects are equal and contributive to the learning process? How do you get young people to embody new, scientific knowledge?

The DNA workshop

Wednesday, January 10th, 2018

Working with three colleagues from the University, we started a two-day WASO workshop on DNA at a high school today. Combining arts and science. So how do you make art around the DNA-theme? By using macramé of course! By tying a half-knot over and over, it twists around itself like a double spiral, just like […]
