Gianvito Romano, Dong Min Lee and Dr Antoine Stopin participated to the Ö1Kinderuni Im Rahmen Der Science Holidays 2020, to introduce local schoolchildren to the research they perform as part of the Decochrom and Charisma EU funded projects. The children were introduced to the concepts of electricity, circuits, batteries and devices, and enjoyed preparing “lemon batteries” and use them to light up LEDs and electrochromic displays.
