St. Patrick's English School scholars visit POLYMAT

A group of 60 students from St. Patrick's English School have visited POLYMAT as part of the Fomento San Sebastian WeekINN Agenda. Before visiting the labs, they had the chance to attend a scientific talk about polymers so that they could better understand what polymers are and the main research activities of POLYMAT. Afterwards, they went to visit the labs, guided by PhD students of the Centre. During this tour, they could see and participate in some scientific experiments such as film formation of paints, the behaviour of superabsorbants polymers in baby dipers or preparation of carbon from sugar and sulfuric acid.
