Sandvik says that it has partnered with science promotion company Molecular Frontiers to increase young people’s interest in science and technology.

The Planet Earth 2019 symposium, organized by Molecular Frontiers, presented in the roles of molecules in various contexts, especially focused on young people. The 2019 symposium took place at the Stockholm University and featured scientists such as Nobel prize laureates Jack Szostak (physiology or medicine), Francis Arnold (chemistry) and Ben Feringa (chemistry), as well as professor Donald Johanson, discoverer of the fossil australopithecine known as ‘Lucy’ in Ethiopia.

Dr Lorie Karnath, member of Molecular Frontiers’ board of directors, pointed out Sandvik’s smash-proof guitar as a great example of a project that can make young people interested in science, technology and engineering.
