2018 Crystal Growth Competition

CORE Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) have organised a European crystal growth competition for high schools in the neighbourhood of the ESR host institutions. High school students have been invited to the host institute for an explanation on crystallization and a lab tour. The students have been provided with the materials and methods to grow crystals under safe conditions. Sufficient material will be provided to make crystals large enough to use normal photography for a good impression. After their crystallization experiments a selection of high school students will be invited to analyse their crystals at the host institute under supervision.

The crystal pictures will be displayed on the CORE website and a winning artistic and scientific picture will be chosen during the midterm #BIWIC2018 conference 6-7 September 2018.
