Getting high school students enthusiastic about science and creating awareness about solar energy. These are the most important reasons why two UT researchers will embark on a ‘Cycle for Science’ tour of more than 400 kilometers across the Netherlands next week. ‘With some common kitchen attributes you can make a solar panel.’
Many Dutch people go cycling on ‘Hemelvaart’ (Ascension Day). Two UT students Radhika Kapoor (Creative Technology) and Thijs Hamstra (Advanced Technology) took it a step further and decided to bike to Paris. In three days. ‘It hurt a lot. You need to train your butt for this,’ says Kapoor.
