We all need and use science everyday. Our society is strongly based in science and research. Today we enjoy the discoveries of decades ago. That is why it is of paramount importance that we as scientists outreach what we do in our labs.
BCNspiracy is an initiative of a bunch of young scientists in the area around Barcelona, in Spain, that is joining the outreach events at a great scale. They are experience people in outreach, and have now joined efforts to build this great event. Next Saturday, September 30th, they are having a series of TED talks for everyone, covering the most diverse and up to date topics around science: physics, biology, chemistry, math, neurology, ...
The format has the signature of success; lots of very brief talks with sprinkles of workshops and conversations over a drink. The event is inspired in other outreach events such as Naukas, in Bilbao.
The host couldn't be a better place, CosmoCaixa is a worldwide recognized science museum, that has been showing science in a very hands-on approach for over 35 years.
I highly encourage you to attend, have fun and learn about the cleaning relationship between soap and steal, about the love relationship between brain and bowels, collective thinking in biological systems, understanding the formation of the solar system through meteorites, or the relationship between Salvador Dalí and Science.
