“La Festa de la Ciència i la Tecnologia” (The Science & Technology Party) is a science outreach event organized by the Municipality of Barcelona, where citizens learn directly from professionals about scientific and technological topics of interest. LCATM has partnered with top research centers, such as the Institute of Evolutionary Biology (CSIC-UPF) of Barcelona and the Institute of Marine Sciences (ICM-CSIC) to create, develop and manage the workshops in which the researchers teach citizens about mutations, biodiversity, model organisms such as Drosophila melanogaster, as well as through SeaDance, an interactive game in which the participants, through body movement, must manage to keep in balance a marine ecosystem.
