The Science Museum of the University of Navarra has brought together more than 600 schoolchildren from Navarre -from 3rd of ESO to 1st of high school diploma- around the activities of the Science Weeks, with the goal to explain science to young people in a fun and entertaining way. The students, accompanied by their teachers, were able to enjoy informative talks on science as well as experimental workshops, which took place from November 14 to 18 at the University of Navarra.  

"Once again this year, the Science Museum has wanted to bring science to everyone and for everyone, collaborating with schools, colleges, professional and special training centers, taking science to the streets of Pamplona and the Egües Valley, collaborating with the Museum of Environmental Education and other institutions. In the month of November, science is already part of the culture of the city", says Ignacio López-Goñi, director of the Science Museum of the University of Navarra.

In total, 620 students from ten schools in the region participated in the activities organized by the scientific institution: IES Julio Caro Baroja, FEC Vedruna, Santa Luisa de Marillac, Liceo Monjardín, IES Basoko, CIP Donapea, IES Sierra de Leyre, Centro de training Profesional María Inmaculada, The British School of Navarra and high school Luis Amigó.

Participants were able to enjoy informative sessions on different branches of science: "per diem expenses, telomeres and health", "BioRevolution with Synthetic Biology", "Do you accept the challenge? Reduce your impact efficiently", "How do you think your brain works?" and "What can you do for the environment?". In addition, the schoolchildren participated in different workshops related to the subjects they see in their schools: biology - methods for capturing and studying animals; geology - fundamentals and properties of minerals; microbiology - staining and viewing of the oral microbiota, and the usefulness of antibiotics; Chemistry - energy emission, pH, catalysts, exo/endothermic reactions, polymers; and physics - transmission of waves through different media, their properties and uses.

Science for all audiences has been the Science Museum's proposal for these Science Weeks in Navarra.

The Science Museum has designed a program of activities for all audiences that began on November 4 and runs through November 25.

 "Science on Wheels" is a project of the Science Museum that aims to disseminate science to institutions and groups that sometimes have difficulty visiting the Museum's facilities. On November 8 and 9, the Science Museum visited the high school of Education Special "El Molino" where 54 students were able to carry out various scientific workshops, guided by students from the Schools of Science, and Education and Psychology of the University of Navarra, as well as by educators from the center itself.

On the other hand, the Science Museum went to the Egüés Valley on November 12 and 13 to explain to families and young people some concepts of Chemistry through experimentation, a weekend full of scientific activities in which more than 1,500 people participated.

Infographics on science in bus shelters and mupis in Pamplona and in stores, schools and health centers in the Egüés Valley; scientific film screenings, and two exhibitions ("Fotciencia'18" on scientific photography, and "Art and Science: a feminine look") complete the set of activities of the Science Museum.

The Science Weeks in Navarra is an event co-organized by the University of Navarra, the Pamplona Planetarium, the Public University of Navarra and the Friends of Science Club. development The Science Museum of the University of Navarra has the support of the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT) / Ministry of Science and Innovation, as well as other institutions such as the Government of Navarra, Pamplona City Council, Laboral Kutxa, Valle de Egüés City Council, the group Women for Science and Technology and the School of Sciences of the University of Navarra.
