On June 14 and 15, 2019, eleven secondary school teachers and one primary school teacher traveled to Barcelona in order to learn with and share their experiences with members of González Lab: (Miriam Merenciano, María Bogaerts and Pepi González); Irene González (biotechnology student who has designed the stereoscope for mobile phones); and with Roberto Torres, the person in charge of communication for the “Melanogaster: Catch The Fly!” citizen science project. This year, the project has been joined by four new schools located in Granada, Hospitalet (Barcelona), Alaquàs (Valencia) and Tudela (Navarra).

Tomelloso’s teachers joined via Skype to share their experience organizing the scientific dissemination event “Show The Fly”.

We feel privileged to be able to work with such a motivated (and fun!) group of teachers with whom we share our passion for bringing science to schools and increasing critical thinking in our society.

Thank you all for coming!! And see you in 2020!
