In this presentation, attendees will be able to discover the physics, chemistry or technology that hides behind elite sport in the casual way that characterizes López Nicolas.
There will also be room to learn about the historical legacy of the Murcia region through the conference “Past, History and Memory: What Happened, Happened?” On Wednesday, November 9, researchers from the College of Education Laura Arias Ferrer and Alejandro Igea will deconstruct some of society’s most entrenched historical hoaxes.

The Week of Scientific Culture will be the final culmination of the activity “De Cañas con la Ciencia”, a meeting with young researchers in which topics of great interest or social interest to citizens can be explored, such as forensic analysis of the risks associated with antisocial behavior of adolescents or what role women have played Really into the history of art and why not know, among other small talks that will take place in the relaxed atmosphere of the Rockabilly Gastrobar at 7:30pm.
