As part of the agreement signed between the Institute of Polymer Science and Technology (ICTP-CSIC) and San José del Parque School from Madrid, Dr. Mario Hoyos has conducted a three days research project in the ICTP-CSIC labs to four students of 1º Bachelor’s Degree under the outreach activity entitled “Fantastic Plastic". During the research activity a luminescent and superhydrophobic multifunctional material was performed. With these activities, framed within the AGAPE Project, Dr. Mario Hoyos and the ICTP-CSIC seek to encourage young students interest in polymer science.
The Spanish Royal Society of Chemistry has awarded a grant to Mario for conducting this outreach activity!!!!
