On May 30, the Institute of Chemical and Biological Technology António Xavier at the NOVA University Lisbon (ITQB NOVA) opens virtually its doors, from 10 am to 5 pm, for a day full of activities for all ages.
In an interactive online session, the ITQB NOVA Open Day will combine virtual visits to spaces that have never been open to the public with the latest news from the work carried out by the Institute's researchers in order to fight the COVID-19 pandemic and find solutions that improve people's lives.
It will also be possible to visit an exhibition in a 3D environment and chat in individual rooms with researchers.
Anyone who wants to know more about ITQB NOVA courses has a dedicated area, where they can discuss any queries with current and former students.
The little ones were also not forgotten: there will be activities for them to do at home and they will be able to attend the traditional Spectacular Science session with researcher Carlos Romão.
To close the day, several science quizzes will be available, with prizes for audiences of all ages.
The ITQB NOVA Open Day is organized every two years by the institute's researchers. It is a unique opportunity to discover the institution from the inside, learn a little more about a scientific career and understand the science behind the different moments of our lives.
