For the younger generation
For high school students
MARVEL participates to Thematic day for high school students organised by EPFL, e.g.
- at the gymnasium in Thun on 7 April 2022
- at the gymnasium in Porrentruy on 30 October 2019
- at the Collèges Sainte-Croix and Gambach in Fribourg on 31 October 2017
These are great opportunities for MARVEL researchers to share about their research and to learn to adapt their message to non specialists. On the other side, the students can discover more about the topics such as physics, chemistry, materials science and computational research within their own four walls with conferences and feature demonstrations.
For girls and young women
To awake the interest of girls and young women for scientific careers, MARVEL is a partner to special events organized at EPFL and in Switzerland, for girls only or with half of the seats for girls.
For the public at large
MARVEL takes all the opportunities to showcase its research, sharing and explaining it to the public. In recent years, MARVEL
presented a stand with 3D movies and fun experiments to show how novel materials are created by computational design: at EPFL Scientastic (2018) and at the EPFL Open House part of the celebrations for its 50th anniversary (2019).
