At the annual event of the Federation of Industry, schoolchildren aged 6 to 14 were able to take part in workshops from various companies. The ARIC supervised a total of three stations, where the students could extract starch from potatoes, learn about the use of starch in cosmetic products and the detection of starch using iodine staining. This enabled the students to immerse themselves in the topic of extracting, using and analyzing starch and to get to know the professional field and research activities through practical work. This opportunity was enthusiastically accepted by the students.
