Two Wageningen projects are in the running for the Science Prize awarded by the Dutch children’s television programme Klokhuis. The projects are on Vegetables from Mars and Clean School Routes.

The television programme aims to reward scientific research which is interesting and relevant to children with the new prize. The Mars project looked at whether plants could grow on Martian soil, while the school routes project identified the cycling route to school with the cleanest air, for children at the Haagse Schoolvereniging in The Hague. The winner will be announced at the scientific film festival InScience on 2 November in Nijmegen.
