Two different worlds coming together
Every year in March, primary school pupils in Utrecht get to spend an hour firing off a barrage of questions at a professor, right there in their own classroom. Professors cycle to the schools to tell pupils about their research. Before Meet the Professor, the participating schools receive five golden envelopes containing hints about their professor. Each hint is accompanied by a ready-made lesson idea. The next edition of Meet the Professor is on March 20, 2024.
It’s great to see the children's enthusiasm and how much attention the professor pays them. It’s two different worlds coming together.
