Brief description of activities:
Badatel is a project running on the Faculty of Science of Palacký University in Olomouc, Czech Republic since 2006. Its main goal is to promote participation of motivated secondary-school students (i.e. aged below 20) to the scientific research under supervision of experts from the university. We also support their participation to the national and international scientific contests.Under activity „Science is fun“, we also prepare programs for the secondary-school science-clubs. The experiments are performed in the school under supervision of teachers, and during the academic year, the school classes are also allowed to visit university labs. Another activity is the internet contest L@byrint, which is focused on chemistry. Students from all three activities meet on the annual Conference of Young Scientists that is held every May, where they present results of their work.
