The support for the high school research project is for motivated students from 5- and 6-vwo who want to carry out their own research within the field of chemistry for their profile paper. Due to the nature of this activity it is only available to Dutch students.
The support takes place on several days in spring and autumn.
Wednesday 30 and Thursday 31 October 2019
Tuesday 16 and Wednesday 17 June 2020
During the support you can execute the practical part of your high school research project (partly) with us. We offer a number of facilities that are not available in secondary schools and you can visit us with your own research question for a day(part). Depending on your research question and availability, you will be invited for half a day or a whole day to carry out your analyses or synthesis/purification under professional supervision.
The practical supervisor will contact you about the possibilities for your research. In some cases, the submitted research proposal may not be carried out for safety reasons. In consultation with the practical supervisor, an alternative procedure can be considered.
Initially you sign up for both days. Depending on your research question and the availability, you will be invited for half a day or a whole day to carry out your analyses (or synthesis/purification) under professional supervision. After your application, we will let you know as soon as possible which day(part) you are welcome.
