"There is plenty of room for stories in the nanoworld! Do you want to explain them to us?"
This activity combines science and literature and has the objective to open the mind of the young students, and to estimulate their creativity, at the same time that they learn and understand the concepts behind nanoscience and nanotechnology: small size, different effects, different properties, etc.
The nanostories should be in Catalan or Spanish, and with a maximum of 200 words. They should be in someway related to nanoscience and nanotechnology. They should be original stories and can be poetry, lyrics of a song, a traditional story, a science fiction story, or something else.
The prizes include visits to the organizing research centers (ICMAB, ICN2, IREC or IN2UB), 3D printing or robotics workshops offered by Casa Saigner, nano-T-shirts, nano-books and an entrance for the Annual Conference of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology organized by the SCN2.
The awards will be known on 29 April in Vil·la Urània (Barcelona), where the winners will be announced. If it is not possible due to pandemic restrictions, the winners and awards will be annonced and given online.
