"A researcher in your classroom" for the Science Week reaches 6 schools and more than 220 students

During the Science Week 2019, in November, six of our researchers brought scientific research closer to the young students aged 15-17 years old within the framework of the programme "A researcher in your classroom". They went to five different highschools and gave a talk to the students, who had the opportunity to learn more about nanoscience and nanotechnology and about what is it like to be a scientist.

About the initiative "A researcher in your classroom"

"A researcher in your classroom" is a programme from ICMAB that brings our reserachers to primary and secondary highschools, breaking the barrier between the students and scientists.

This initiative started ten years ago and received the Outreach Project Award of the E-MRS Spring Meeting in 2014, brings every year many volunteer researchers to the classrooms of different centers, and become for one day "ambassadors of the nanoscience and nanotechnology" for the young ones. The initiative aims at approaching the new materials to the students, but also to encourage scientific vocations, break the walls between the school classrooms and the research centers, and let the researchers meet the future generations of scientists. Is is both a gratifying experience for students, teachers and researchers.
