    Outreach activities

    • Brunings lecture - yearly event on estuaries that brings science, industry, consultancy and government together (14-01-2020). I developed short videos for different scientists of Utrecht University working on estuaries (bruningslecture.nl).
    • Hackathon Duurzame Bodemligging Rijntakken - the ministry of infrastructure and environment conducted a MIRT-investigation to prevent continuous river bed erosion, supported by Arcadis. A brainstorm event was organised with 20-25 young, multidiciplinary professionals (10-2017).
    • PABO-students meet scientists - students of the training teacher program at Hogeschool Utrecht were invited to ask question and look around different workplaces at the University (16-11-2017).
    • Preparation and instruction of the minimetronome on Terschelling - several institutions on the island (staatsbosbeheer, rijkswaterstaat, primary schools, VMBO) constructed their own tidal flume. As a representative of Utrecht University I instructed teachers on doing experiments (03-05-2017).
    • Development educational posters - 3 posters were developed for schools (primary, secondary or higher education) that develop their own flume for tidal experiments (05-2017).
    • Tours at the Metronome facility - for example for primary school children (11-16-2016), the master introduction week (08-30-2016), students of the training teacher program at Hogeschool Utrecht (09-02-2016) and MBA studenten (06-12-2016).
    • Guided river experiments - for students and parents during events like open days of the University or a parents day of Earth Sciences (04-18-2015). As a master student I teached 4 vwo (highschool) students of the Junior College Utrecht about river experiments.
