Science does not only cover how your pinky toe works, but also how new planets are discovered! Science is omnipresent and that is why we find it highly important that everyone knows at least a little bit about science and knows how to think in scientific ways. To achieve this goal, Wtnschp does various things like organising scientific cafés and massive science events, writing blogs together with researchers and involving the social center groups.
Are you passioned by science or just very curious? Then follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Flirckr and YouTube to be constantly updated of our blogs and activities.
Our English Science Blog
A few of our projects for the general public
Each month a number of researchers meet in an informal environment to talk about their scientific expertise. You can join them every second Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. at the bar of the Rits Café!
Bright Club is an evening of English spoken stand-up comedy by researchers for everyone! Participants get a short, but intense training and then get three weeks to put together a short set. Expect a night of scientifically sound comedy, brought by researchers and a pro MC.
The Science Shop builds a bridge between the final year students and non-profit organisations. Within the context of their master- or bachelor thesis students give an answer to the research questions of an organisation, in collaboration with and accompanied by an experienced researcher.

Principles for the Development of a Complete Mind:
Study the science of art.
Study the art of science.
Develop your senses – especially learn how to see.
Realize that everything connects to everything else.
Nothing in life is to be feared,
it is only to be understood.
Now is the time to understand more,
so that we may fear less.
Learn from yesterday,
live for today,
hope for tomorrow.
The important thing
is not to stop questioning.
