Environmental Toxicology at SciFest
The Environmental Toxicology program presented their research at SciFest this year to many interested people and school classes. We answered to questions like: how many man-made chemicals are there? Where do they come from? How do we study their effects? The absolute most popular activity however was the pipetting!
