CNIO & The City
“CNIO and the City” is the educational outreach project sponsored by CNIO with support from the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology (FECYT) and the pro bono foundation Obra Social “la Caixa.” It sets out to stimulate a creative mindset and encourage students of secondary school age to consider the sciences as a career path, by interacting with them directly and providing their teachers with tools and materials to inspire and motivate the entire educational community.
If you are a student residing in the Madrid Autonomous Community, our EDUCACNIO program may prove of interest, as it allows one to participate in hands-on learning activities such as:
- Laboratory Immersion
- My First Science Project
And if you are a teacher at the Upper Secondary or Vocational Training levels, you might want to take a look at FORMACNIO, where you can update your familiarity with the basics of biology and scientific research in general, with particular emphasis on cancer research.
Our lab has been actively participating in this wonderful initiative since the very beginning, receiving students in our lab for one week, to know more about CNIO, how we work daily in the laboratory, participating in our experiments, lab meetings, seminars, etc.
As shown in the first picture, Maria was one of the first researchers at CNIO supervising one of our visitor students, Nerea, from Madrid.
