New outreach activities

  • Summer Camp: Let’s do chemistry

    At the ICIQ’s chemistry summer camp we made visible the chemistry that surrounds us. ‘Let’s do chemisty’ is an introductory course to the world of chemistry. Participants have the chance to carry out experiments in our learning laboratory, doing group work and learning how to present their work and results obtained in public. The objective was to carry out a programme of experiments that explained and promoted understanding of our daily life from the perspective of chemistry. The activity was addressed to children finishing 5th and 6th year of primary education.

    BIYSC (Barcelona International Youth Science Challenge) is an international scientific challenge event, that aims to connect the most passionate science students with the best researchers.

    The ICIQ was one of the research centres participating in BIYSC. We offered the research project entitled “From molecules into electricity” , a workshop where participants learned to prepare organic molecules and devices that can be used to transform the sunlight into electrical power.

    BIYSC was created by the Fundació Catalunya-La Pedrera to accomplish four main objectives:

    • Inspire bright young scientists to apply their minds to multi-disciplinary research.
    • Engage young researchers to like-minded peers and eminent scientific leaders through close and personal interactive sessions.
    • Empower participants to pursue their research passions.
    • Challenge future scientists to drive their passion with attitude.
