How do we prepare our talk?
During #100tífiques period in February, we organise training workshops so that you can focus well on the topics and catch those that raise higher interest.

However, you have reference materials at your disposal (workshops recorded, presentations of previous training, templates for the talk, didactic guide, etc.) in the TOOLS section.

How long should our talk be?
Ideally, you should not exceed 40 minutes. There should be time enough for you to be introduced, and for the final Q&A part. If you are teaming up with another scientist, plan a longer duration with the centre.

If it is a virtual talk, students will ask their questions at the end. We are unable to tell if you will have direct interaction, so it is important that you agree with the centre on the dynamics of the session.

The school visit: is it online or face-to-face?
You can choose the preferred mode, and we will try to prioritise it. Whatever the case is, schools are required to provide a videoconference link at the time of registration, so that they guarantee the possibility of doing it remotely.

If you have the chance to do it physically, please indicate your margin of mobility in the registration form (throughout Catalonia or within a region).

How old are the students?
They are boys and girls from 6th year primary and 1st CSE (Compulsory Secondary Education, around 11-13 years old).
