IQCC opened its doors to 91 high-school students from INS Sagulla Blanes, INS de Celrà and Les Alzines

A few times a year, the IQCC opens its doors and gives the opportunity to high-school students to know our work through exciting lectures and computational and experimental workshops. This provides the secondary school pupils the possibility to get a feel for the research and have real-time chemistry in their hands. Last month, it was the turn for the visit of 50 high-school students from INS Sagulla Blanes, 15 of INS de Clerà and 26 from school Les Alzines.
In the first part, the director of IQCC (Marcel Swart) gave a brief summary of the IQCC institute and two researchers of IQCC (Xavi Ribas and Lluís Blancafort) explained their research at the IQCC. Afterwards, the pupils attended four workshops (Changes in the colour with pH; Three reactions in one test-tube; Computational simulations and Virtual Reallity to experience in real life the research in chemistry with the help of some PhD students and postdocs from IQCC (Dr. Stuart Kennington, Nikolaos Siakavaras, Clara Sabrià, Neus Pagès, Fred Martins, Núria Alsina and Daniel Bosch).
