L´escola José Echegaray de Martorell presenta el programa MAGNET, en aliança amb l´ICMAB-CSIC, amb l´objectiu de promoure la ciència entre l´alumnat

Tal com ha explicat la directora del centre, Cristina Dalmau, “ens vam adonar que havia arribat el moment de fer un pas endavant en les ciències a l’escola, i això ens va portar a adherir-nos al programa ‘Magnet’. Així, hem treballat juntament amb l’ICMAB el pensament de la metodologia científica, i ara al centre no només experimentem, sinó que també indaguem i ens fem moltes preguntes. A l’Echegaray construïm aprenentatge, i a partir d’ara aquest tindrà uns fonaments molts sòlids basats en la ciència”.
