The Summer Science Factory (SSF) is a series of workshops in Croatia for students from 9-18 years old, which this year will be run in Bjelovar (19-25 July 2020) and Split (27 July - 2 August 2020). Organised by the NGO Tvornica znanosti in collaboration with the Mediterranean Institute for Life Sciences (MedILS), the SSF helps stimulate intellectual potential, critical thinking and teamwork by connecting young students with early career researcher volunteers, who both create and prepare the workshops and act as mentors.
The SSF has announced a call for volunteer mentors to submit their proposals for a six day (7 hour/day) workshop in a discipline and topic of their choice.
