Researchers from the University of Aveiro organised an exciting activity for high school students, part of XPERiMENTA, in the context of Algae Vertical’s SP1A sub-projects. Entitled ‘Algarte: Exploring the colours and textures of seaweed’, this experience allowed young people to explore the science behind seaweed’s polysaccharides, lipids and pigments. They learned how to extract biomolecules and analyse their properties, such as colour and the formation of gels and films. This scientific ‘journey’ through the richness of seaweed incited scientific curiosity, provided practical experience and promoted networking with researchers
