Lecture - Tiny Forests in Maastricht

Maastricht is the first city in Limburg to plant four tiny forests. These are mini forests in lesser green neighbourhouds, close to schools. This way kids can play in it, residents can come into contact with nature and animals can feel at home. This is continuation of the city/nature vision of Maastricht that was released in 2018.

Mini-symposium - Biology in development

Maastricht University is working hard to expand the natural sciences in the Faculty of Science and Engineering. Biology is a big part in this goal. In this mini symposium (3 x 25 minutes), three main programmes within this new biology are explained.

  • Systems biology
  • Biobased materials (in English)
  • Biology in the Maastricht Science Programme

Excursion - City nature in the footsteps of Jac. P Thijsse

The guide will show you that there still is a lot of nature to be found in the city, if you just know where to look. Just like Jac P. Thijsse already described in the early 20th century in one of his Verkade albums.

De excursie start om 14.00 uur vanaf de volière in het stadspark aan de Hubertuslaan.The excursion will start at 14:00 from the bird cage in the city park near the Hubertuslaan.

Escape from the lab
Niet ge- definieerd

1 t/m 5 October - 11:00 en 14:00

Escape room: Escape from the bio lab

A test lab, a scientist taken hostage, a dealer and lots of pills. Help our scientist by unmasking the dealer. Find the code and send the information of the dealer to the police.

This activity is suitable for students with a Nature/Technic or Nature/Health profile, because, next to biological tests, you have to solve assignments that involve other natural sciences.
