“The ‘how’ is more important than the ‘what’. We have to teach children to exercise critical thinking”

Jordi Gaitan (Blanes, 1970) joined the ranks of the Tandem project, which IRB Barcelona  started last year with the Mare de Déu de Montserrat school in Cornellà. This project, implemented with the collaboration of the Catalunya – La Pedrera Foundation, aims to boost academic results in school through science and biomedicine. Jordi’s job is to advise the Tandem team about how to include new teaching techniques when designing the academic curriculum.

“I wish more scientists visited schools and got a kick about how excited kids get about science”

Muriel Arimon is the new IRB Barcelona’s new Public Engagement and Science Education Officer. “I think our outreach activities benefit not only society but also our young scientists. It is an opportunity for them to face a different challenge than those they experience in the lab, to learn how to communicate and to get a new perspective on how science is perceived,” she says.
