The Embassy of the Czech Republic will open the exhibition Czech Scientists and Their Inventions accompanied by a comparative lecture on education and research systems between the US and the Czech Republic by Dr. Jakub Kostal, Assistant Professor of Chemistry at The George Washington University, on Tuesday, October 10, 2017, at 6 pm. This educational exhibition is composed of caricatures of leading Czech scientists and their most famous discoveries. A part of the Open Science projects of the Czech Academy of Sciences, its goal is to shed a spotlight on the pioneering steps these brilliant researchers took and to recognize and present their achievements before new audiences, especially younger generations.
This program honors Gregor Mendel, a meticulous scientist who was decades ahead of his time as he was the first to apply the mathematical methods to botany experiments, specifically plant hybridization.
