Delft scientists present “green” series of children's lecturesWe generate more and more electricity from solar panels and windmills, but what if there is no wind and the sun is not shining? Will you still be able to charge your phone? This is one of the many questions that will be addressed in a brand new series of lectures by the MuseumJeugdUniversiteit. For this "green" series – made especially for children between the ages of 8 and 12 – this long-term collaboration between MuseumJeugdUniversteit and Science Centre Delft travels to the TU Delft campus, which celebrates its 180th anniversary this year.
Save the date: Speeding up the energy transition!The energy transition is a crucial weapon in the fight against climate change – societies biggest challenge. Only if our energy system is carbon neutral by 2050 we will be able to mitigate the effects of climate change. But at the current pace, we will not get there in thirty years’ time.

However, a major challenge that hampers widespread application is that genome editing requires getting molecular tools (nucleic acids and enzymes) into the cell, across the its insulating membrane.
