IQCC opened its doors to 98 high-school students from INS Montsacopa, INS Sant Feliu de Guíxols, INS Vallvera and Montessori Palau Girona

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 22nd February, it was the turn for the visit of 28 high-school students from INS Montsacopa, 17 of INS Sant Feliu de Guíxols, 35 INS Vallvera and 18 from Montessori Palau Girona.
In the first part, the director of Science Culture and Digital Communication (C4D) and IQCC researcher (Sílvia Simon) gave a brief summary of the IQCC institute and two researchers of IQCC (Anna Roglans and Ferran Feixas) explained their research at the IQCC. Afterwards, the pupils attended four workshops (Changes in the colour with pH; Three reactions in one test-tube and Computational simulations to experience in real life the research in chemistry with the help of some PhD students and postdocs from IQCC (Dr. Albert Artigas, Dr. Carles Fuertes, Nikolaos Siakavaras,
Christos Christou, Daniel Bosch and Guillem Vila).
