Last February 11, on the occasion of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, more than 20 IBEC researchers gave talks in different schools around Catalonia. The objective of the meetings between researchers and students was to bring science closer to schools and to vindicate female scientific talent.
A total of 21 IBEC researchers participated in the #100tífiques event, which tripled the participation of both researchers and schools involved.
In addition, 6 more researchers gave talks at the Gayarre School, where students from P3 to sixth grade enjoyed presentations by Irene Marco, Marta Badia, Alba Herrero, Silvia Pujals, Yolanda Castillo and Bia Moreno.
The Gayarre School and IBEC collaborate thanks to the Magnet program, an initiative promoted by the Jaume Bofill Foundation, the Department of Education, the Barcelona Provincial Council, the Barcelona Education Consortium and the UAB Institute of Education Sciences .
