(More information here). «It is not the first outreach activity that I do but every time I find the experiment to be refreshing and enriching. It is a pleasure to share your knowledge with a young audience and to help them understand the world around them. It is also a challenge to explain with simple words some rather complicated notions – but it is a good communication exercise».– Pierre Lovera
