Tecnatom had the pleasure of actively participating in, as well as sponsoring the first edition of the Clubes de Ciencia España (CdeC ES) programme.
This internationally renowned project began in Harvard and MIT in 2014, and has expanded into countries such as Bolivia, Brazil, Mexico, Paraguay and Peru. In 2018, Spain became the first European country to sign up to the programme.
The First Clubes de Ciencia España was a real success. The event took place in the Spanish city of Granada from 3rd to 7th of September and around 130 youngsters aged 17 to 21 took part.
