Our contribution to the "Bojos per la Física" (Crazy about Physics) programme, coordinated by ICN2 and IFAE, consists of one session with our researches.
This year 2022, the session also counted with our science communication specialist, apart from one of our researchers. The 25 students that came were very happy of the result.

For the session, which took place on Saturday, 1 October 2'22 in the morning, we counted with the following researchers and programme:
- Nico Dix, from the NN group, did a session about "Ferrites and 5G" and organized an experimental session on diffraction with the mobile phone and electromagnetic waves with the microwave ovens.
- Anna May Masnou, Communication and Outreach Officer, gave a brief introduction about ICMAB and did a session on science communication, in which the students had to end up filming a short video for TikTok on one of the topics of the YouMaker or What The Fisica videos.
The students really enjoyed the session, and could another Saturday morning together. They come from different towns in Catalunya, and during these sessions they can be together for some time, sharing their passion: physics!

Bojos per la Física
The Fundació Catalunya La Pedrera develops 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 the initiative "Bojos per la Física" coordinated by ICN2, and IFAE.
The "Bojos per la Física" initiative allows 20-25 students to interact during 10 work sessions with researchers from ICN2, IFAE, UAB, ICMAB, ICFO and ALBA Synchrotron. Our shared objective is to design a challenging experience for the students and offer them some hints about what does being a researcher in physics mean.
The programme includes the following general topics: particle physics, nanotechnology, photonics, cosmology, astrophysics, materials science and astronomy, and counts with 11-12 sessions in different research centers where the students can interact with researchers about these and more physics topics.
