DP2 - Noorderlicht

Friday afternoon, 17 November, the Dutch-B students of the International School Groningen visited the annual photo exhibition of Noorderlicht in the center of Groningen. De exhibition was on Imagination of Science, showing a wide variety of scientific settings and topics. In the student’s words: cool, inspiring, innovative, entertaining, disturbingly interesting, a mind opener. It was great fun to end the school week this way and the teacher is looking forward to some interesting pieces of written work.
