Science is done by scientists. Or is it?
This exhibition explores seven remarkable stories of people who are opening up scientific research to everyone, taking it out of professional labs and into homes, workshops and back yards.
From people who build their own medical devices to manage their diabetes, to community groups measuring pollution, a growing number of ‘do-it-yourself scientists’ around the world are busy hacking, experimenting and inventing.
Equipped with low-cost sensors, smartphone apps and the ability to share information with communities online, these DIY science pioneers are challenging our ideas of who a scientist is and what science will look like in the future.
This traveling exhibition is part of the European project « Sparks » that aims to promote responsible science and innovation. Developed by the Science Museum in London and financed by the European program Horizon 2020, the exhibition will travel to 29 European countries within the next 2 years. The Luxembourg Science Center has adapted the exhibition in Luxembourg and will animate it at the Forum Geesseknäppchen.
