STEM AMB TU: new initiative from AMIT-CAT to promote STEM among girls

The Association of Women Researchers and Technologists in Catalonia (AMIT-CAT), with the collaboration of the ICE/UAB and the sponsorship of the Institut d'Estudis Catalans (IEC) thanks to the "Premi Sant Jordi Creus Cases 2017", opens the call for the "STEM AMB TU" initiative, in which young women professionals will bring STEM to secondary schools to promote STEM among girls.

The call is open to young women professionals, master students, PhD researchers and Postdoctoral fellows from the scientific and technical areas. AMIT-CAT will select the candidates, and the chosen ones will become ambassadors of the project. They will be responsible for delivering informative talks to secondary school students (2nd and 3rd ESO) in Catalonia. Their mission is to pesent their professional activities and/or scientific research, motivations and future expectations, incorporating the gender dimension in the talk, to raise awareness that being a woman cannot be a barrier to their professional success.Resultat d'imatges de stem amb tu amit

"STEM AMB TU" aims to make three elements visible: the scientific and technologic women, the gender bias in our society with its causes and consequences, and the promotion of STEM among girls as exciting and future professions. Ambassadors will receive gender training, oral communication skills training, and a financial aid in exchange for their work. In addition, they will become members of AMIT-CAT (first year free of charge). 

The secondary schools that are interested in receiving a talk of the project "STEM AMB TU" may request it from June to September 2018 through ICE/UAB. Priority will be given to centers based on the geographical area in order to be present at the entire territory; and to those centers that organize the activity for more than one class or course and/or in those that the talk is part of the school STEM promotion activities. 

From ICMAB, we support this initiative and we would like to encourage our Master students, PhD researchers and postdoctoral fellows to participate in it. We think that it will have a positive effect, both for the young women who will be trained and that will deliver the talks, and for the students who will have the opportunity to listen to them in their own schools.

    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)).
