Date: 17/05/2019

Time: 09:00-14:00

Place: Historical Bulding of the University of Barcelona

Context: IVa UB Science Festival

Free admission -




The 5th Science Festival of the University of Barcelona, to be held on Friday May 17 during the morning at the Historical Building, comes with many new activities.

The festival aims to make research carried at the University accessible to everyone, in a fun and innovative way. Therefore, throughout the day, UB - organize outreach activities, workshops, talks and games that will value the work of researchers from all fields of knowledge.

The Institute of Cosmos Sciences of the University of Barcelona and the Quantum Physics and Astrophysics Department participate in this event with several workshops.

Workshop "3D constellations" (ICCUB (IEEC-UB)-FQA)

A workshop to create constellations, which will serve to better understand the distances between stars in the three dimensions of the space, and their different physical properties.

This workshop will include a large-scale representation of the Gaia's first sky map. An all-sky view of stars in our Galaxy – the Milky Way – and neighbouring galaxies, based on the first year of observations from ESA's Gaia satellite, from July 2014 to September 2015.This map shows the density of stars observed by Gaia in each portion of the sky.

Workshop: "Ultracold UB" (ICCUB-FQA):

Participants will be able to learn about some of the most relevant phenomena of quantum mechanics, taking as an example the current research in physics laboratories of ultracold gases. Quantum technologies will be of great importance in the near future in both computing and cryptography techniques and information handling.

Software made in open code by the students of the Physics Faculty of the UB.
