Audience: 105 fourteen-year old students

105 teenagers, all students of the 9th grade, participated in the outreach activity of Mr Saad Jahangir (ESR5). The activity was implemented at the “The Crescent School” in Lahore, Pakistan.

Mr Jahangir aimed to focus on the importance of science but also on the career prospects of young researchers. He had prepared 2 age-appropriate presentations; one was related to physics and the other one to the career opportunities offered to young researchers by the Horizon 2020 programme of the European Union. The brief age-appropriate presentations, the short science movies, the questionnaires Mr Jahangir had developed for his students but also the interactive way in which he implemented his activity contributed to the successful outcome.

According to the 4 teachers that were present but also to the principal of the school, Mrs. Sobia Lodhi, “Saad managed to involve the students into his activity. This way they gained knowledge, got inspired but also enjoyed the event”.
