From February 28 to March 2nd the PRBB centres offered workshops and activities to students attending YoMo: The Youth Mobile Festival. YoMo, part of the GSMA Mobile World Congress, offers the 20,000+ young people attending the festival the opportunity to have fun learning about science and technology.
In the PRBB space called BioJunior the participants transformed their Smartphones into microscopes, learned how the hearts of zebra fish regenerate, and discovered the secrets of biodiversity and evolution. They were also able to explore urban planning, air pollution and radiation projects, and see how chicken and fish embryos are used in biomedical research. About thirty researchers and support staff interacted with the young people showing them that science could be their future.
