Matheroes for Christmas: Exhibition and Virtual Escape

Photoenergy, Superconductor, Magnon, ElectroWoman and BioNanoCapsule, our 5 Matheroes, are busy this Christmas! Do you want to join them? You can go see the exhibition and do some experiments, or you can rescue them from the Dark Squad in the new Virtual Escape!

The Matheores are visiting Utebo (Zaragoza)

The Matheroes in Utebo

The exhibition "Matheroes: Supermaterials, the heroes of the future" is from 14 December and until mid January in Utebo, near Zaragoza, in the Cultural Center Mariano Mesonada. 

From 15 to 21 December 2020, the highschool IES Pedro Cerrada students are visiting the exhibition and attending some demostrations about the materials' super-properties, like invisibility, fluorescence, superconductivity or magnetism. A total of 10 classes from 2nd ESO to 1st BTX, around 150 students, will attend this exhibition. 

During the Christmas Holidays and until mid January, the exhibition will be open to the public, and during the weekends there will be demos related with the exhibition for children from 5 years old (the activities will be adapted to the age of the participants) in the following sessions:

  • Saturdays 19 and 26 Dec, 2, 9 and 16 Jan: at 4:30, 5:30 and 6: 30 pm (45 min each)
  • Sundays 27 Dec, 3 and 17 Jan: at 10:30, 11:30 and 12:30 am (45 min each)

Matheroes Virtual Escape

If you want to have some fun while learning the super-properties of the materials of the future, you can participate in the Matheroes Virtual Escape, to rescue them from the Dark Squad, by solving some engimas that will make your brain work hard! 

To join the Virtual Escape, available in Catalan and Spanish, fill in the form you will see in the Matheroes website, so we can send you the "Matheroes Virtual Escape Guide" and start the Virtual Escape. You only have 1 hour to finish it, so be prepared!


Researchers' Night and Science Week 2020

On 27 November 2020, The Matheroes Virtual Escape was offered as an online activity within Wanderlust, the European Researchers' Night in Zaragoza to the participants of the Night. In addition, from 16 to 29 November 2020, the Escape was open to the participants of the Science Week (Setmana de la Ciència) announced through the CSIC and FCRI websites, and open to the schools through ESCOLAB. More than 50 schools registered to participate in the Virtual Escape of the Matheroes during November!

  • Simulated microgravity system to synthesize high-quality 2D crystalline materials

    29 July 2021 285 hit(s) Press
    A team of researchers demonstrated that 2D porous crystalline molecular frameworks (MOFs) can be grown with excellent control over their morphology and homogeneity by using a custom-made microfluidic device. This approach recreates on Earth the microgravity environment of laboratories on the International Space Stations.

    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!

    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)).
