The "Societat Catalana de Química" (SCQ-IEC) organizes every year the contest on the best research chemistry projects for secondary school students (Premis als Treballs de Recerca de Batxillerat dins l'Àmbit de la Química). The award for the finalist students is a two-week scientific internship in a Catalan research center or university during July 2018.
The awards ceremony took place on May 9, 2018, at the IEC, and was introduced by a debate on "Connecting materials science to the young students and adults" by our researchers Susagna Ricart and Arántzazu González, and followed by the awards delivery and the talks of the winners.
This year, the ICMAB hosted Queralt Olesti, from the Institut Joaquima Pla i Farreras (Sant Cugat) and Andrea Díez, from Institut Jaume Salvador i Pedrol (Sant Joan Despí), for a two-week scientific internship with some of our researchers:
Apart from the laboratory, the students could visit our installations and equipment, and attend seminars and workshops related to materials science.
Thanks to the Societat Catalana de Química, especially to Carles Bo and Fina Guitart, for counting on us!
We hope they had a nice stay with us!
