The past 15th of November, during the science week, our group organized different outreach activities to 14 to 16-years-old youngsters in Claret school in Valls. This activities consisted on the the explanation of the importance of science in drug discovery and the research needed for finding new medicines, as well as, on giving an overview of our work and scientific life. Moreover, several experiments were performed, such as protein visualisation with virtual reality glasses, extracting DNA from strawberries, precipitating proteins from an egg, or even doing capsules using sugar and black pepper, simulating the excipients and the drug from a medicine.
