The activities consist of short talks 7 minutes each aimed at students, their teachers, counselors and parents. Eight young researchers of Fundación Ciencia & Vida reveal, from a personal and intimate standpoint what science means to them and what it means to do science in our country. Each speaker tells a different personal story and along with that they touch on key scientific milestones. In their talks the investigators emphasize how perseverance, motivation and passion drive scientists and how this approach can help each one in the audience in their own area of life.
