The group of students came thanks to the ESCOLAB initiative, from the Barcelona Council. The initiative is a platform in which research centers enter the visits they offer, and the high schools can register to them.
In this visit, Anna May first introduced the ICMAB to the students. Then, Judith Oró gave a talk about the new materials and nanoscience and nanotechnology. Then, the students were divided in two grous and did activities around the materials' properties with Judith Oró and Anna Crespi.
After the workshops, the students could learn why is X-ray Diffraction used in our center, and they could see gold nanoparticles using the Transmssion Electron Microscopy.
Thank you for the visit!
