LIH Science Quest - the lay public on a scientific mission 

From 23rd to 25th February, LIH held a large science-promoting event, the first of its kind in Luxembourg. Aiming at presenting the institute’s biomedical research activities to high school classes and the broad public in an unconventional and entertaining way, the participants of the LIH Science Quest were plunged into an unexpected setup that put them into the shoes of a research team.

An exceptional two-hour programme, inspired from adventure and escape games, awaited the more than 50 teams during the three days. The game’s scenario? A team of researchers from LIH was close to a crucial discovery, but ... they disappeared! From there, one choice only was left for the participants: to put themselves in the shoes of the scientists and take over their research project! 

By solving enigmas and experiencing fun physical, cerebral and virtual challenges, the teams passed through different rooms kept in semi-darkness to complete their important mission: identify the efficient cancer treatment that the lost research group had been close to discovering.
