Visit: El Salvador SchoolVisit: El Salvador School<p style="text-align:justify;"><span lang="EN-US" style="font-size:11pt;line-height:107%;font-family:calibri, sans-serif;">41 students (4<sup>th</sup> year ESO) of the El Salvador School (Torrelavega) visited the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Department on May 10th, 2024, in the framework of an educational technical and teaching project. Dr. Antonio Dominguez welcomed the students and delivered a talk about the role of Chemical Engineers. Next, they did a guided tour to the laboratories and had the opportunity to speak with the staff about the research topics that are currently developed in the Department and observe how science contributes to solve the major social challenges through different experimental workshops. They also participated in a very interesting Escape Room about electrochemistry. We hope you enjoy it!!</span></p><p style="text-align:center;"><span lang="EN-US" style="font-size:11pt;line-height:107%;font-family:calibri, sans-serif;"></span><img src="/departamentos/ingquimica/PublishingImages/2024-05%20NOTICIAS/Visita%20Misiones%20Colegio%20Salvador%20-%20Grupo%20500%20pixel.jpg" alt="" style="margin:5px;" /><br></p><p style="text-align:center;"><img src="/departamentos/ingquimica/PublishingImages/2024-05%20NOTICIAS/Visita%20Misiones%20Colegio%20Salvador%20500%20pixel.jpg" alt="" style="margin:5px;" />​<br></p>2024-05-16T22:00:00Z1760
