“We help teachers to understand that we all do science every day”

Maribel Hernández, Francisco Barriga, Clara Suñer and Saska Ivanova have been working with teachers in the Mare de Déu de Montserrat primary school in Cornellà to help them build tools based on science that they can use in their classrooms.

“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.

L’IRB Barcelona fa tàndem amb una escola pública de Cornellà per fomentar l’èxit educatiu a través de la biomedicina

És un projecte de tres anys dins el programa Escoles Tàndem de la Fundació Catalunya-La Pedrera

És el primer Tàndem entre un centre de recerca i una escola de primària

La biomedicina vertebrarà el currículum educatiu de l’escola

L’objectiu dels Tàndem és afavorir l’èxit educatiu, aportar un valor afegit als centres escolars i potenciar la cohesió social
