IBEC’s science on show

This eye-catching installation will feature examples of products that use nanotechnologies – such as a hydrophobic shirt, a water bottle to purify water, and waterproofing sprays – as well as questionnaires to fill in about public opinions about nanotechnology, and multimedia information materials.

On Saturday 14th, Laura Casares and Pilar Rodríguez of the Integrative Cell and Tissue Dynamics group will be conducting interactive experiments that demonstrate the transmission of forces between cells during migration, and how to measure them. This event, Les cèl·lules fan força!, will be organized by the Parc Cientific de Barcelona (PCB) and will take place in the Darwin tent from 18:00-20:30 in the Parc de la Ciutadella.

The Festa de la Ciència was founded in 2007 to showcase the science being done in the city’s universities, research centres and technology companies via exhbitions, talks and demonstrations. Since then it has grown into an extensive program of activities for all ages, transforming Barcelona into a ‘giant laboratory’ for the general public to do experiments.
