This educational exhibition is composed of caricatures of leading Czech scientists and their most famous discoveries. A part of the Open Science projects of the Czech Academy of Sciences, its goal is to a shed a spotlight on the pioneering steps these brilliant researchers took and to recognize and present their achievements before new audiences, especially younger generations.
