Mind the Lab brings science in your way…From Greece to all over the world!
Mind the Lab, a breakthrough initiative in bringing science to the general public, was founded by SciCo in 2016. The aim of this initiative is to act as a science teaser and a powerful tool to attract the interest of the general public, and direct it to science-related channels, such as science festivals.
For first time, Mind the Lab was successfully conducted in the Athens metro, Greece, on the 3rd of February 2017, at 8 metro stations. At that day, passionate scientists, inventors, researchers, teachers and students from more than 20 research and educational institutions used interactive and entertaining ways to present scientific and technological topics to more than 10,000 metro passengers (1 out of 10 passengers stopped by to be informed and interact with the exhibits).
In 2018 Mind the Lab will travel across different countries around the world in order to literally bring science on people’s way. Theo Anagnostopoulos, the Co-founder and General Manager of SciCo explains the vision of Mind the Lab and presents this innovative approach that aims to boost science communication!
