Become a Friend of Science and you will be part of the benchmark institution for science in Catalonia
We break the glass ceiling barriers for girls in science. We work so that the little ones want to study scientific-technical disciplines. Let them be interested in being biologists, physicists, application designers, laboratory technicians… whatever they want!
We promote scientific dissemination in the Catalan language. We guarantee that the boys and girls and youth of our country have science content in Catalan. Also because with quality and rigorous scientific information we will be able to decide about the future of the planet.
We make science accessible to everyone and with content in Catalan for the little ones. Let neither gender nor zip code determine anyone’s future. Become “Friends of Science”!
