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 week, it was the turn for the visit of 35 high-school students from Montessori Palau school.
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 (Albert Poater and Anna Pla-Quintana) 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 (Àlex Díaz-Jiménez, Ernest Ubasart, Laia Vicens, Pau Font, Artur Brotons, Helena Giramé, Àlex Iglesias and Judit Gálvez).
