Project participants had a chance to gain knowledge in the field of chemistry, biology and pharmacy in MUB laboratories, acquire teamwork competences in the context of the work environment, stimulate their creativity, develop critical thinking, learning and problem solving skills and acquire ICT competences by using the software used by pharmacists .
After expanding their theoretical knowledge, during classes in laboratories, they learned, among others, drug synthesis. Project participants produced, for example, aspirin. As the project manager, dr hab. Michał Tomczyk - head of the Department of Pharmacognosy of the Medical University of Bialystok said- the formula of the classes worked perfectly. Young people verified their ideas about chemistry and drugs in real working conditions with modern research equipment. MUB Vice-Rector for Education, prof.
