C. elegans at the Fira de Recerca en Directe 2022 at CosmoCaixa Barcelona

Teenagers attended FiraDeRecerca at Cosmocaixa in order to expand their knowledge in Science. Different groups organized some scientific activities related to their work. Our group was represented by Dr Anna Laromaine, the PhD students Amanda Muñoz, Sumithra Srinivasan, Darla Mare and the master students….

They prepared four different activities showing how we use C. elegans as a tool for the bioevaluation of nanomaterials.

They were together with Dr. Esther Dalfó, who is using C. elegans as a model for revealing the principal molecular pathways involved in Parkinson disease.

Students were suprised by how a tiny worm can help us than much in science and they made a lot of interesting questions.

On Saturday another difference audienced came to cosmocaixa: families with their children, and our members had to adapt the activities for younger kids, but they really enjoy the activity.
