Last February 10th Sara and Francesca brought IOSA experience to the kids of PEAC (Educational Enrichment Program for Students with High Abilities) Madrid Sur, in Leganés (Madrid). The 12-13 years old students had the possibility to discover firsthand how optical communications and fluorescence work. They were excited to understand how lasers and fibre optics function and had fun learning about the different kinds of luminescence and where we can see them in nature or in artificial substances.
Finally we made a presentation in occasion of the International Day of Girls and Women in Science. They discovered that, beside well know Marie Curie, there have been and there are a lot more of female scientists doing amazing things and that science can be interesting and fun for everyone.
