It's election weekend: Guy Weber, News Director RTL, & Sasha Kehoe tell us more. Plus Elizabeth John reflects on founding the Scienteens Lab, now ten years old.
Guy Weber has worked on so many elections in his time as a journalist and yet his energy is palpable, the excitement doesn't wane. Elections have that. A potential turning point for a country. Granted, even if things were to change politically for Luxembourg I'm not sure how much change one would actually feel as many of the parties have a center-ist feel. But this will be a close election for sure.
Now as News Director at RTL, Guy will be in charge of all the coverage for the Luxembourg news. As we recorded this interview (Friday morning), construction work was underway in the RTL building to set things up for election night this Sunday, when all the politicians will arrive at some point late in the evening when the results are in.
Myself and Sasha Kehoe will be bringing you the results as we hear them on Today Radio (also live-streamed), and as many guests as we can find for interviews in the studio during the course of the evening.
Join us and text in with your ideas and comments as the night progresses on 621 52 5000.
Scienteens Lab celebrates a decade
Dr Elizabeth John, Team Leader and founder of the Scienteens Lab, managed to combine her love of research with education outreach by developing the Scienteens Lab, which is now celebrating ten years. In this time it has shown over 14,000 pupils what research means, with about 1000 workshops and 1500 teachers.
Elizabeth is dedicated to giving young adults the opportunity to really feel what research means, in a proper lab environment. She is also deeply dedicated to promoting women and girls in science. Alongside many Scienteens academies and workshops, Elizabeth and her team now also give sustainability workshops to adults who, she finds, know so little about this topic and we live in a world where we really do need to have a working base knowledge of what sustainability means in our world today.
