Visits and open doors

"Bojos per la Física" comes to ICMAB to discover magnetism and piezoelectricity

The Fundació Catalunya La Pedrera has developed the program "Bojos per la Ciència" to open the doors of the most relevant research institutes to the most excellent secondary school students. ICMAB joined in 2017 ICN2, IFAE and UAB for the second edition of "Bojos per la Física" and continued this year within this program, which has been a real success.

Un año mas hemos acogido en el ICMAB una nueva edición del programa ARGO. Durante varios días los jovenes participantes han conocido el centro, han trabajado codo con codo con investigadores y han aprendido como es el día a día de la profesión científica.

Estades a l'ICMAB, programa ARGÓ

argo

El Programa Argó és un programa institucional del la UAB de transició entre la Secundària i la Universitat.  Una de les línees d’aquest programa consisteix en organitzar un campus d’estiu per a estudiants de batxillerat. Enguany l’ICMAB s’ha volgut sumar a aquesta iniciativa i ha acollit sis estudiants que han tingut l’oportunitat de fer una estada en el nostre centre i de conèixer més de prop algunes de les tècniques que utilitzen els investigadors per a caracteritzar els materials que desenvolupen. La Judit Oró, l’Anna Crespi, l’Ana Esther Carrillo i la Noemí Alonso han estat les responsable d’organitzar les diferents activitats. Els estudiants, la Marta, la Montse, l’Adrià, en David, en Gabriel i l’Alejandra estan cursant el batxiller a l’IES de Castellar del Vallés, a l’ Institut Montserrat i al Col•legi Salesià Sant Joan Bosco de Barcelona i a l’Escola Cervetó de Granollers. Ells mateixos han fet aquest vídeo explicant l’experiència.

The seminar was followed by a visit to four of our laboratories: X-ray diffraction, AFM, SoftLab and the lab of Dr. Judith Guasch. 

Madame Châtelet for the high school Infanta Isabel from Barcelona who visited ICMAB

On Friday, March 9 2018, one day after the International Women's Day, the students from 2n BTX of the high school Infanta Isabelin Barcelona visited our Institute.

A surprise awaited them: instead of having the usual seminar from one of our researchers, they had 12 researchers from the Institute waiting from them. But this 12 women did not give them a talk. Instead, they represented the play "Madame Châtelet and her Instagram followers".
