Researchers from the School of Science tell about their research, offer interactive activities to help people understand complex scientific principles, and open the doors to the departments’ laboratories to introduce and illustrate their activities.

The degree course in Optics and Optometry will be present with booth “The iris of the eye seen up close“.

When: March 20, 2024, from 2 p.m. to 7 p.m.

Where: Galleria della Scienza (piazza della Scienza – ingressi lato edifici Atlas-U1 e Quantum-U2)
