We are very happy to announce that Andrés Gómez and Guillermo de Andrés have been selected as finalists with their project “BRIDG3D: Imprimiendo puentes en 3D” in the XVIII Edition of "Cienca en Acción" in the category "Science and Technology". The FINAL will take place in Izarra Centre in Ermua (Vizcaya, Basque Country) from 6 to 8 October 2017.
Andrés Gómez and Guillermo de Andrés have brought this science outreach project already to different scientific fairs and events. This year they were at the Youth Mobile Festival (YoMo) in February/March, at the Barcelona Maker Faire in June, and in a smaller format at the Pint of Science Festival in May, and at the "Saló de l'Ensenyament" in March. In all the events the activity is received with great enthusiasm.
