The students of physics and chemistry of 4th ESO of the highschool "La Tordera" in Santa Maria de Palautordera received the visit on 6 February 2019 of Anna Laromaine, researcher at ICMAB. Anna visited the highschool in the framework of the #11F2019, the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, in which many researchers gave talks in primary and secondary schools during that week.
Anna explained the students what her work was as a researcher like, she showed them the materials that she works with, and the possible applications. Her group works in the design and synthesis of nanomaterials for biomedical applications, and studies the interaction between nanoparticles and living beings (cells, C. elegans...). The students could enjoy the conference and had the opportunity to talk with her and ask her questions!
The school posted a news on their website: "Ens visita l'Anna Laromaine". Thank you!
"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. If you are interested, please contact us!
