The GUM for higher education

Dare to doubt on the GUM tours
For students in higher education, the GUM offers guided tours (1½ hours) during which we challenge their critical spirit and open-mindedness: scientific and critical thinking take centre stage. Dare to think!

GUM Tour - IMPACT

Science and society

We examine how science is connected with society, from medicine to Olympic sports and from crime to advertising. Are scientists in a better position to know what is good for society? Are they responsible for their discoveries or inventions? The students will discover that science is not a remote concept at all.

  • Duration: 90 minutes

  • Number of participants: At this time groups can have a maximum of 9 participants because of the corona measures.

  • Price: 70 euros + entrance ticket (free for Ghent University students; 2 euros for other students)

GUM TOUR - LIMITS

Science and ethics

How far can and should we go? This tour investigates the limits of science. The students will explore the world of laboratory animals and relate objects to themes such as decolonisation. We also consider the ethical issues surrounding displays of human remains.

GUM Tour - DOUBT

Philosophy of science

Which questions do scientists get asked? How do they deal critically with knowledge? The students will discover the value of doubt and dive deeper into the answers that science can (or cannot) offer. During this tour, the students will approach matters based on the philosophy of science and get to know the person behind the scientist.
