Do you know Rosalind Franklin, Vera Rubin or Trota de Salerno?

You would know these scientists if you had been on May 3rd at the stage reading "Madame Châtelet and her Instagram followers", played by some of the ICMAB researchers.
May 7, 2017

The play was originally prepared on the occasion of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science (on February 11th) and represented in different high schools during February-March of this year. However, it was included within the INSPIRACIÈNCIA "In parallel" activities, in the "Chemical elements in literature" series. 

The play presents some of the scientific women along history: Hypathia of Alexandria, Trota de Salerno, Nettie Stevens, Rosalind Franklin or Ada Lovelace, to name a few. Many people know who was Marie Sklodowska-Curie, but there is a general ignorance related to many of other important and brilliant women scientists that have made great discoveries in their lives.

The play, which is in a "stage reading" format, was represented in the CSIC-Catalunya building at 7 pm on May 3rd. Many people came to the event, who enjoy the show and even said that it was too short. The format is simple: Madame Châtelet receives in her living room and in chronological order, some of the most brilliant women in history, while the piano is playing by another of the women (Hildegarda von Bingen) and a presentation shows images of what is being said.

The ICMAB researchers are happy to bring this play, which is especially created for teenagers, in high schools around ICMAB and Barcelona. Follow them on their Instagram @madamechatelet.

    After last year’s party being cancelled due to the COVID pandemic, we were stoked to be able to finally celebrate again! The 2021 ICMAB Party was celebrated after more than a year without live events due to the collective efforts to stop the spread of COVID. The party was not without changes, as it was celebrated entirely at ICMAB’s terrace to avoid concentrations of people inside. We celebrated on 16 July 2021 with many events, including the first CRYSTALMATCH contest, the awards ceremony for the FOTICMAB contest, the BEFORE&NOW photo activity, a tie dye workshop by Sara Ruiz, Nerea González and Lídia Ballell, a sketching workshop by Alejandro Santos, and the final of the Tennis Table tournament!

  • ICMAB Celebrates its 35th anniversary!

    05 July 2021 991 hit(s) Outreach
    The Institute was one of the four Materials Science CSIC Research Centers founded in 1986. This year is the 35th anniversary of the Institute of Materials Science of Barcelona! It was put together in 1986 through the union of different research groups from different local institutions, all coming together in a singular building which was, on its own, a collaboration between the CSIC and the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, who conceded some of its territory so the ICMAB could be built near the Centro Nacional de Microelectrónica (the Institute of Microelectronics of Barcelona (IMB-CNM)).
