Scifest is a popular science fair that takes place in Uppsala (Sweden) where different researchers from different disciplines offer interactive demonstrations, hands-on activities, scientific shows, and engaging scientific lectures to school pupils and the general public.
Aleksa Stankovic (ESR 1) explained how scientists can get a snapshot of Earth’s past climate from tree rings.
Ferran López Martí (ESR 2) made the meteorological prognosis of Storm Hans (Summer 2023, Sweden) accessible for students.
Emma Holmberg (ESR 9, neé Allwright) showed with colored balls how the probabilities for heatwaves have increased for climate change.
Anastasiya Shyrokaya (ESR 10) was incharge of an experiment that showed how different types of soil, as well as the elevation, can increase damages caused by intense rain and floods.

Anupama K Xavier (ESR 7) participated in ASGARD project in Belgium, 22-24 March 2023
Anupama K Xavier participated in ASGARD, a school project organised by Sint-Pieterscollege Jette together with the Belgian Space Pole institutes ROB, RMI, BIRA and STCE. Each year, students –between 15 and 19 years old– from the United Kingdom, Portugal, Spain, Belgium, and the Netherlands, send their self invented and self-made experiment into “space” with a stratospheric balloon. Participating in ASGARD is very similar to a real science mission in space, performed by a team during one school year. They also get an opportunity to interact with scientists who work in these institutes to familiarise with present day science and its growth.
Jamie Mathews (ESR 4) writes a piece about his involvement in the project Línte na Farraige, 27 March 2023
In this blog post, Jamie Using reflects on how the light installations to visualise the risk of rising seas and storm surges by Finnish artists Timo Aho and Pekka Nittyvirta help us reflect on local changes due to climate change.
2022 European Researchers’ Night/Forskarfredag, 30 September 2022

Outreach campaign in Kerala, India, by Sohan Suresan (ESR 6)
Presentation by Ferran López Martí (ESR 2), UU Climate Change Day, 20 May 2022
Presentation by Anupama Xavier (ESR 7), ASGARD: balloons for science, 28 April 2022
Anupama Xavier participated in the ASGARD project, a balloon project organized once a year by Royal Meteorological Institute of Belgium (RMIB) for schools, allowing students to propose an experiment to be launched with a weather balloon. During the day, the participants were immersed in meteorology, astronomy, and space science via workshops and visits at the three institutes – RMIB, Royal Observatory of Belgium and Royal Belgian Institute for Space Astronomy.
Anupama presented a simplified version of her doctoral studies work to students from primary and secondary education.
