In Oeiras, ITQB NOVA joined forces with several partners (CIB, ANSEME, iBET, Green-it & InnovPlantProtect) to organize a full day of activities, where there will be something for everyone!
The Scientific Illustration Workshop – Rabiscos em casa
The Scientific Illustration Workshop – Rabiscos em casa, from 2 PM to 3 PM (GMT+1), will be a dedicated class so that anyone interested can learn to draw the plants they have nearby. Live to your home or backyard, scientific illustrator Luísa Crisóstomo will share the tools necessary to know how to observe and transmit to paper the fascinating details of the plants that surround us. This activity is organized by ITQB NOVA and GREEN-IT, with the support of the Municipality of Oeiras.
Registration is free but with limited places: https://forms.gle/8w8zned6rBhStXCSA
Debate ‘Does the food we eat actually come from nature?’
This will be the question explored in a debate, moderated by journalist Luís Ribeiro, which will include representatives from different areas, in a multidisciplinary panel composed by nutrition specialist Conceição Calhau, producer Gabriela Cruz, researcher Pedro Fevereiro and gastronomy professional José Maria Moreira. This activity is organized by ITQB NOVA, CIB, IBET, Green-it, InnovPlantProtect and ANSEME.

Grand opening of the PlantLabSketching virtual exhibition
May 18 will also be the day of the grand opening of the PlantLabSketching virtual exhibition! “PlantLab Sketching” is an Art & Science itinerant exhibition of drawings produced in the context of an “urban sketching” activity organized in the Open Day 2017 of ITQB NOVA. It will now be available to everyone all over the world, with a 3D virtual tour, which will premiere in the Fascination of Plants Day.

On this day it will even be possible to take a guided tour of the plant life in Estação Agronómica Nacional, in a face-to-face activity guided by ITQB NOVA and GREEN- IT researcher Ana Fortunato, for a limited number of people and according to all the safety rules.

Activities of the children at the pre-school “Grãos de Gente – Associação de Desenvolvimento Infantil”
Finally, the children at the pre-school “Grãos de Gente – Associação de Desenvolvimento Infantil” are already “doing their research” with scientific protocols shared by ITQB NOVA/iBET/GREEN-IT researchers. Over the next weeks, the children of four different classes will learn how rice and bean germinate and register how this growth is affected by different conditions, like real scientists. By 18 may they will have shared pictures, drawings and other records of this fascinating experiment with plants we know so well from our day to day lives. This event is organized with the support of the Municipality of Oeiras, and is a pre-event of the European Researchers Night – Reggae.
