Confronted with the health emergency caused by COVID-19, and within the framework of the European Project <<BIP-CO>>, Applied Nanoparticles SL and the Nanoscale Science and Technology Center –nanoCiTec- have developed materials to entertain, inform and educate the youngest and their families, at the intersection of the viral pandemic and the world of nanotechnology. An action to contribute to the collective effort against the pandemic and make #StayHome #YoMeQuedoEnCasa more bearable.
Applied Nanoparticles SL (spin off of the Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology -ICN2-, the Autonomous University of Barcelona -UAB- and the Catalan Institute of Research and Advanced Studies -ICREA-) and the Nanoscale Science and Technology Center -nanoCiTec- are developing the project <<BIP-CO: Launching BioGAS + iron nanoparticles additive for biogas output optimization in Colombia>> which has received funding from the Research and Innovation Program Horizon 2020 of the European Union, through the INNOWWIDE project.
Like practically every country in the World, Colombia has been affected by the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). From the BIP-CO Project we want to put our grain of sand in the collective effort against the pandemic. With this objective in mind, we have prepared two Notebooks "Nanocolouring in times of Coronavirus", which integrates a set of materials to entertain, inform and educate the little ones and their families at the intersection between the viral pandemic and the world of nanotechnology aimed at making #StayHome #YoMeQuedoEnCasa more bearable.
In the first Notebook we try to answer their questions and concerns about the Coronavirus, its symptoms and how to avoid them through a story created by the child psychologist Manuela Molina Cruz. And we try to entertain them through a set of sheets for nanocolouring, painting and scribbling made up of images of inorganic nanoparticles extracted by Dr. Víctor Puntes (researcher at the Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia -ICN2-, the Vall d'Hebron Institute of Research –VHIR- and the Institut Català de Recerca i Estudis Avançats -ICREA-) when observing with an electron microscope.
