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. Yesterday it was the turn for the visit of 25 high-school students from INS Celrà.
In the first part, the director of IQCC (Marcel Swart) gave a brief summary of the IQCC institute and two researchers of IQCC (Marc Garcia-Borràs and Agustí Lledó) explained their research at the IQCC. Afterwards, the pupils attended three workshops (Distinguish pharmaceutical compounds based on their IR spectrum; Three reactions in one test-tube; Computational simulations) to experience in real life the research in chemistry with the help of some PhD students from IQCC (Ricard López-Coll, Cristina Castanyer, Adrià Juvanteny, Valentina Iannace, Roger Morneal and Sílvia Escayola).
