Ecotox Centre at TecDay in Frauenfeld
What are environmental hormones? How can they be deteced? The Ecotox Centre answered these and other questions to pupils of the Kantonsschule Frauenfeld at the TecDay on November 3, 2011. The youths could experience and explore which effects micropollutants have on water organisms and how these substances can be detected with the help of bioassays. Partners of the performance were the Office of the Environment of the Canton of Thurgau and the Eawag. TecDays are organised by the Swiss Academy of Engineering Sciences to offer pupils interactive insights into topics from natural sciences and technology.
