3rd Edition of Nanoinventum with Anna Roig

On June 4 the final event of Nanoinventum will take place at the Faculties of Chemistry and Biology of the University of Barcelona. Primary school students and their teachers from 5 different schools, involving more than 200 students, will present the work in nanorobots that they have carried out this year. They will also interview Anna Roig (ICMAB) and Mercè Segarra (UB) to know more about the life of a scientist.

The Nanoinventum 2019 final event, sponsored by Lubrizol -Lipotec, will begin at the Faculty of Chemistry at 9:30 h, with a small exhibition at the Solar Atrium where the students will expose all their inventions to resolve future challenges such as pollution of the oceans or the cure of diseases.

From 12 pm, in the Aula Magna of the Faculty of Biology, the "small" researchers will interview the researchers Anna Roig, from the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona (ICMAB-CSIC), and Mercè Segarra, Vice-dean of Research and Transfer of the Faculty of Chemistry and professor of the Department of Materials Science and Physical Chemistry of the University of Barcelona (UB).

The awards ceremony will take after the interviews in the same place, and will close the Nanoinventum year!

About Nanoinventum

Nanoinventum is a pedagogical proposal born to bring the world of nanocience and nanotechnology closer to primary school students. This project started at the CCiTUB, and became a collaborative project, with the help of other institutions, in order to reach a greater number of students. The Center for Specific Pedagogical Resources for Support to Innovation and Educational Research (CESIRE), the Bioengineering Institute of Catalonia (IBEC) and the scientific communication company, "Connecta Ciencia" , are participating in the project.

School teachers initially receive a training in nanoscience and nanotechnology with the help of the CCiTUB technicians and other collaborators (CESIRE, IBEC, Connecta Ciencia). In addition, they are given the "NanoExplora" kit with the necessary material so that children can learn the basics of nanotechnology. Once the children have received this training, they must try to solve a scientific challenge. To do this, they must design and build a nanorobot documenting their project.

On Tuesday, June 4, we will be able to see what technological wonders these future researchers have devised.I

In 2018 Anna Roig already participated at the Nanoinventum final day, which took place at CosmoCaixa, as you can see in this photo:
