‘BIYSC Be Passionate With Attitude Award’
AWARDED BY CATALUNYA LA PEDRERA FOUNDATION
'Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference'
The purpose of this award is to inspire and encourage students from all over the world to believe in themselves, living and sharing their passion; and to empower them to face the challenges whilst pursuing their contribution to transforming society.
This recognition awarded by the Catalunya La Pedrera Foundation and the Víctor Grífols i Lucas Foundation will provide the two most committed students in the program the opportunity to be sponsored to attend an international event the year after the BIYSC takes place, so they can walk the path towards their dream.
Amanda de la Jara and Marco Camporeale, winners of the BIYSC Awards 2018!
Catalunya La Pedrera Foundation and the Víctor Grífols i Lucas Foundation have recognized their participation at the third edition of the Barcelona International Youth Science Challenge (BIYSC) sponsoring them to attend this year’s London International Youth Science Forum (LIYSF).
Marco Camporeale is a 17-years-old student from Rome, Italy. He participated in last year’s Institute of High Energy Physics (IFAE) project “Cosmic rays detection, astrophysics at your fingertips”. His report on astrophysics named ‘Muon detectors on Mars’ has won the recognition of the Catalunya La Pedrera Foundation.
Amanda de la Jara is an 18-years-old student from Barcelona, Spain. She participated in last year’s Institute of Evolutionary Biology (IBE) project “Uncovering the hidden diversity of the oceans”. Her report on evolutionary biology named ‘Protists and their impact as invasive species’ has won the recognition of the Víctor Grífols i Lucas Foundation.
The two students will attend this summer the London International Youth Science Forum to continue fostering their scientific vocation. During the two-week program, they will share their passion for science with other students from all over the world.
