[workshops] Why young people should read popular science texts, and why they should do it right now.

Professor Peti-Stantić participated at a state-level professional development teacher conference organized by the Croatian Education and Teacher Training Agency. The conference for Croatian language teachers was titled Tko čita, tko piše: užitak i značenja, Potreba za čitanjem književnih i neknjiževnih tekstova i pozitivan stav prema čitanju unutar područja kurikula hrvatskoga jezika [Who reads, who writes: reading for pleasure and meaning; The necessity of reading literary and non-literary texts and creating a positive attitude towards reading within the Croatian language curriculum framework].
The conference was held on 31 August and 1 September 2021 on Zoom, and professor Peti-Stantić held 4 workshops titled Zašto mladi trebaju čitati popularnoznanstvene tekstove, i to odmah? [Why young people should read popular science texts, and why they should do it right now.]
The texts used in the workshops were written by Ivan Đikić and Pavel Gregorić and are a part of the newly published book edited by Anita Peti-Stantić and Vedrana Stantić, titled Putovanje u nepoznato: Zašto se bavim znanošću i kako je do toga došlo? [A trip to the unknown: Why am I a scientist and how did I become one?]
