School visits to DIPC and CFM research centers
School visits

Every year, the DIPC and the Materials Physics Centre (CFM CSIC - UPV/EHU) organise visits for schools.

This initiative aims to convey the appeal of a scientific career as a career option and to showcase the great scientific work being carried out in our environment in the fields of materials science, nanoscience and supercomputing, among others.

Our centres are multidisciplinary, staffed by physics, chemistry, computer science and engineering specialists who actively participate during the visit to our facilities and laboratories.

The visit is free of charge and is intended for 1st and 2nd year Baccalaureate and Vocational Training students. Groups of up to 45 students are accepted. We will organise two virtual visits throughout the year to meet the large number of requests from schools: December 15th, 2023 and February 9th, 2024. 

For more information about the visit programme, please contact us at visit.cfm@dipc.org.
