IBEC wraps up its first year of ‘Bojos per la ciència’

Friday’s closing event saw the students present their group projects, which involved presenting an idea for a solution to a medical problem using bioengineering. A panel of experts – Josep Samitier, Núria Montserrat and Elena Martínez – gave feedback and presented all the studetns with diplomas. In all, about 70 parents, teachers, students and researchers attended the closing event. Aimed at students in their last two years of high school who are interested in a scientific career, ‘Bojos per la ciència’ collaborates with several of the leading research centres in Catalonia to provide weekend courses to prepare the students for careers in diverse disciplines such as chemistry, nutrition, economics, maths, new technologies, medicine and physics. Other BIST centres IFAE, ICIQ and the IRB were also taking part this year. Watch IBEC’s video below to find out what taking part in ‘Bojos per la ciència’ meant to the students.
