March 2019 -  sCYence Fair

Scyence fair logoThe sCYence Fair was organised by the Cyprus Institute on 15-16 March 2019, under the auspices of the Minister of Education and Culture and with the support of Aglantzia Municipality. The event aimed to stimulate scientific interest and to encourage participation by young students and support the next generation of scientists from Cyprus. The event provided an opportunity of our young scientists to increase their awareness of the wonders of science, add to their knowledge, and broaden their scientific horizons. Students got the chance to demonstrate their scientific projects to the public, and got a chance to tour The Cyprus Institute’s facilities, attend related lectures, and enter a contest for the best presentation.

In this context, Efthymia Nikita, in close collaboration with other STARC members and affiliates, organised a series of osteoarchaeology-themed activities. Students of various ages became acquainted with the human skeleton as a key source of information for past life through hands-on demonstrations. In addition, a brief lecture was given on ancient migration patterns, as deduced through the study of the human skeleton.

September 2019 – Researcher’s Night

Hundreds of children, parents, teachers and other members of the public had the opportunity to engage in hands-on activities regarding the human skeleton as a key source of information about life in the past. Our team of interns, PhD students and post-doctoral researchers worked tirelessly to communicate the enthusiasm of exploring health and disease, migration, demography, diet and other aspects of our ancestors’ life through their bones.
