Pere Renom

“We have given you, O Adam, no visage proper to yourself, nor endowment properly your own, in order that whatever place, whatever form, whatever gifts you may, with premeditation, select, these same you may have and possess through your own judgement and decision […] We have made you a creature neither of heaven nor of earth, neither mortal nor immortal, in order that you may, as the free and proud shaper of your own being, fashion yourself in the form you may prefer.”
Oration on the Dignity of Man – Giovanni Pico della Mirandola

Nanotecnology: the smallest world

published on 7.02.2007

Two teams of young people prepared a competition of robots. In the process they discover the world of nanotechnology. Nanotechnology is a technology that works by one billion times smaller than a meter in a ultramicroscopic scale. We’ll go to Barcelona Science Park and the Institute of Materials Science, CSIC to watch how real nanotechnology develops. We will see some of the current applications of nanotechnology and discover future revolutionary applications. Finally we will follow the teams in the process of preparing the robots and compete with other schools from around the country.
