Final Report - XJENZA-TV (Science popularisation TV bringing those the knoweldge society to those not yet participating)

Project ID: 36808
Funded under: FP6-SOCIETY


The island schoolchildren of Cyprus and Malta do not know their local heroes, nor do they know much of the ongoing science even within Malta and Cyprus' shores. Professional jobs continue to attract the brightest kids in Malta, for example, whilst science careers are not usually contemplated. The primary aim of this science-TV series was to introduce Maltese and Cypriot school children to science, show them that it is fun and not so very difficult, by allowing them to perform science themselves, thus introducing it to their peers, to other children. The project's final report which includes images from the series reveals the disposition of the 26 episodes produced as part of the project.
