Activities related to scientific culture and information exchange between science and society, including the Microelectronics Museum Space.
Public outreach activities are important to promote the awareness of the benefits of science and technology, the scientific culture of society and the public support to scientific and technological research. The IMB-CNM outreach activities are oriented to its R&D field of micro and nanoelectronics. A Museum Space has been established which shows equipment used in microelectronics technology and illustrates how silicon chips are fabricated. The Museum is an important element in the existing programme of visits for high school students, which is aimed to encourage young people to follow science and technology careers. In addition, IMB-CNM participates in the annual Science and Technology week in Spain.
Guided visits for student groups
As part of the public outreach activities of IMB-CNM, guided visits are made for student groups, from either high school or university.
CSIC in the classroom
IMB-CNM participates in the activities for schools/high schools coordinated by the CSIC Delegation in Catalonia. Specifically, the activity "Robots and Chips. Sophisticated technoloy" is offered jointly with the Artificial Intelligence Research Institute (IIIA).
Micro and Nanoelectronics Museum Space
The "Zenon Navarro" Museum Space has been created at IMB-CNM to approach micro and nanoelectronics technology to a general audience.
