Children's programme 

The University Day also offered a children’s programme (in Dutch), where primary school students were introduced to science in numerous workshops such as a mobile planetarium, forensic research and a digital archeology lab with 3D scanners and drones.

For the first time a programme for students in secondary education is being offered. They can join a masterclass Artifical Intelligence and experience what it is like to work in a courtroom.
