OUTREACH ACTIVITIES


Our outreach activities can help you to understand the world around us and it can be really exciting.  Here you will find the outreach activities  we are developing, have a look to our activities and join us making science!

 

Interview to Rosana Mateu

The Czech edition of the magazine “Newsweek” and the Catalan newspaper “Ara.cat” published in April an article about the SC (Science Club) Barcelona. The team is composed by eleven young Catalans who live in Prague, where they moved to work in research.

Rosana Mateu Sanz, the Early Stage Researcher of GLYCOPHARM at Univerzita Karlova V Praze (CUNI), was one of the young researchers interviewed. Rosana explained that she went to Prague for the first time as Erasmus student and she loved the city. Afterwards, she found the opportunity to return to this city and start a scientific career thanks to the GLYCOPHARM project.

GLYCOVIDEO: Another outreach video on our network has been edited by the young researcher at CUNI

01-05-2016

Rosana Mateu, the ESR of GLYCOPHARM recruited by the Univerzita Karlova V Praze , has made an  outreach video on GLYCOPHARM. In this video, she describes in an easy way the general aspects of her project which is titled "Galectin and galectin ligand expression in human tumours and in wounded skin-model". Furthermore, she also explains her experience as ESR of an Initial Training Netwok.

 Maria Sklodowska-Curie: a Polish in Paris

5-3-2014 

The Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), member of GLYCOPHARM, together with the National Museum of Natural Sciences and ROCAVIVA Events have organized the outreach cycle 'Maria Sklodowska-Curie: a Polish in Paris', created to commemorate the centenary of the first institutes devoted to the radioactivity applications: Radioactivity Institute of Madrid (1910), the Radium Institute in Paris (1914) and the Radium Institute in Warsaw (1932). 

 

Six lectures will be held to show to the public one of the most fascinating female figures of the last century. The cycle will be open on March 5 in the Student Residence with the lecture "Women and Science. My own experience" held by Margarita Salas, honorary professor of CSIC. Furthermore, from March 5 and until September 7, there will be an exhibition in the National Museum of Natural Sciences to disseminate the life and work of Maria Skłodowska-Curie and the past and present of the Institutes of Radio.

 

 

 

Atoms and molecules for young students 10 years old 

27-2-2014

Some members of GLYCOPHARM taught a funny and exciting workshop on atoms and molecules at the  Aquinas American School.

Our young researchers Alessandra Lacetera (Early Stage Researcher at Universidad CEU San Pablo) and Silvia Galante (Early Stage Researcher at Center for Biological Research CIB-CSIC) with the collaboration of Dr. Sonsoles Martín Santamaría (Associate Professor at Universidad CEU San Pablo and senior scientist in GLYCOPHARM) performed a tutorial on “Atoms and Molecules” at the Aquinas American School (Madrid, Spain) to the students of 5th Grade of Primary School. With the help of computers, Alessandra and Silvia showed the 3D structure of some molecules such as glucose, water (solid, liquid, gas), graphite, diamond, silk, and DNA.

 

  • Silvia Galante shows the 3D structure of DNA

       

  

  • AlessandraLacetera shows the 3D structure of Glucose

SCIENCE WEEK in Spain 

04-11-2013   

The CSIC is actively involved in Science Week, an annual landmark celebrated throughout Spain in November to which new CSIC centres and researchers are added each year.

In many regions the Science and Technology Week is the most important scientific outreach initiative. Since 2001 it has been organised on a national basis with the aim of bringing science to the public of all ages, to stimulate a taste for scientific knowledge and encourage citizens participation in scientific issues by conducting outreach activities in museums, universities, research centres, technology parks, etc.

Its main feature is that the institutions and research centres open their doors for two weeks so the public can find out about the latest developments in science and the main lines of research that scientists are pursuing. The week gives the public access to the spaces where scientific knowledge is generated, bringing them into direct contact with laboratories and researchers. A whole range of formats are possible: workshops, exhibitions, guided tours and open days, meetings between young people and researchers, science cafés, debates, lectures, shows, etc...

You can consult organised activities on www.semanadelaciencia.csic.es
