Barcelona International Youth Science Challenge
11th-22nd July, 2016
BIYSC is an international scientific challenge event, that aims to connect the most passionate science students with the best researchers. BIYSC was created by the Fundació Catalunya-La Pedrera to accomplish four main objectives:
- Inspire bright young scientists to apply their minds to multi-disciplinary research.
- Engage young researchers to like-minded peers and eminent scientific leaders through close and personal interactive sessions.
- Empower participants to pursue their research passions.
- Challenge future scientists to drive their passion with attitude.
The ICIQ is one of the research centres participating in this event. ICIQ offers the research project entitled “From molecules into electricity.” A workshop where participants will learn how to prepare organic molecules and devices that can be used to transform the sunlight into electrical power. At the end of their stage, the participants will test their own built devices to power several items including toys, funs and the amazing reaction of obtaining hydrogen from water.
