Science communication is really important! Vasco Elbrecht has meet up with Eric Francavilla to learn more about science communication. Eric Francavilla works together with scientists at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland, Washington and helps scientists to communicate their findings to the public. Like the GeneStream Team, he is also producing YouTube videos. We learned many useful and specific things and got feedback on own videos, which will make our future videos even better.
We would like to thank the Rub Research School Plus for financing this stay.

Much research in the region revolves about waste management and especially the contamination of freshwater resources is of concern.
