The Physics and Chemistry Department, with the collaboration of the Technology Department, organized this Scientific Day to promote the scientific and technological interest among their students. All the students participated in some activities related to science, from 1st ESO to 2nd BTX and Formative Cycles. 

The activities included: watching a scientific film, robotics workshop, water analysis, scientific Kahoot, scientific gymkhana, science board games, physics games, and the scientific talks with six invited speakers from the academic and the industrial world, in the fields of pharmacy, biology, materials science, medicine, cosmetics and mathematics. 

This "Scientific Day" is organized for the whole school students, even for those not studying science, to show them that science is in our everyday life, and that it is beyond the school classes. The kids really enjoy it! 

This year's invited speakers were: 

  • José Vidal-Gancedo: "Radicales orgánicos para aplicaciones biomédicas”" (ICMAB)
  • Álvar Sánchez: “Les màgiques propietats d’uns materials sorprenents: els superconductors” (UAB)
