During the REINFORCE sonification workshop that took place last May, Katrien Kolenberg gave a presentation titled Star Songs about how sonification can help to improve research in Astronomy, exploring the benefits of the multisensorial approach for data analysis.
Katrien is a Professor of Astrophysics at the University of Antwerp and the Free University of Brussels, STE(A)M1 Coordinator at the KU Leuven, and an artist. Her work lies in the intersection of artistic expression and scientific exploration: she uses astronomy as a tool for global development and art as a way to touch upon the human condition, often in a cosmic perspective.
Emmanuel Chaniotakis, Researcher at the RnD Department of Ellinogermaniki Agogi School and leader of Participatory Engagement activities in REINFORCE, explains why we need to bring contemporary knowledge and methodologies to the classrooms and how REINFORCE can help in paving the way to future scientists.
Christine Kourkoumelis, professor of Physics at the University of Athens and member of IASA’s Directorate, explains why it is extremely important to bridge the gap between the science that is taught in schools and today’s discoveries and why REINFORCE can play an essential role in reaching this goal.
Stavros Katsanevas, director of the European Gravitational Observatory and Project Coordinator, explains us why REINFORCE is an innovative project and how it will engage citizens and scientists in a continuous interaction aimed to solve problems in frontier physics.
