LIYSF 2019: Day 16

For our first day in France we visited the Cité des sciences et de l’industrie. The site fills three stories devoted to scientific inquiry, containing a vast array of interactive displays and thought-provoking exhibits.

There was a genetics exhibit with an entire wall dedicated to the Human Genome Project. Every gene on every chromosome was detailed, reminding me of the genomics research that I took part in this year under Dr James Bedard.

Another highlight was the astrophysics exhibit, which included an interactive tour of the cosmos, a walkthrough of its history, and a discussion of the origins of the Universe.

Later this evening we got to spend time wandering the city of Paris. I will never get tired of the architecture in Europe.
