The VII Science Festival of the University of Barcelona will take place from 25 to 28 May. For the second year in a row, the event will be virtual. The Festival has become an annual event that allows the public to get to know first-hand the research that is being carried out at the UB. This year's edition offers a wide range of proposals, with new formats and contents, and involves many researchers willing to explain their work smoothly and understandably to reach non-specialized audiences. It proposes activities aimed especially at schools and others designed for the general public, both children and adults. In addition, there will be events where you will be able to participate and interact with the researchers, but also recorded activities to enjoy at any time. All the proposals can be followed on the website and the Youtube channel of La UB Divulga.
The bubble activities include five practical proposals for carrying out in the classroom: two are designed especially for primary schools, and three for secondary schools. Each proposal includes a video so that schools can see the face-to-face workshop previously recorded with a school group, as well as the list of material, if necessary, to be able to reproduce the experience autonomously within their bubble group.
As for the bubble activities aimed at high school students, the Institute of Cosmos Sciences (ICCUB) proposes to bring students closer to the world of constellations. The workshop provides the tools to build a three-dimensional constellation taking into account both the position and distance of the stars that make it up.
