Building models in science

Our team, led by Michela Massimi, takes part in this year’s Explorathon 2016, our largest ever celebration for European Researchers’ Night across Scotland. This event is for 5-11 years old children, and it is a journey through the importance of models in science. By building a (take-home) DNA model, we  explore how scientists use models as standpoints to investigate nature.
