The idea of this project is to make a coloring book for children (3-7 years old), reinforcing concepts and real values of science. Many times when you ask children to draw something about science, they will make you an old scientist, white hair, glasses, crazy, lonely, making explosions...We wanted to create a product that transmits another more constructive, more real image of science. Something that promotes values like - youth - Boys and girls (not only men!) - the life sciences (cell, molecular, structural, computational biology - not only chemistry!) - collaboration, group work - illusion, fun - discovery - curiosity - work, discipline - internationality.
The book is an institutional publication of IRB Barcelona that was distributed in many events, outreach activities, fairs, visits, etc, and also given to our patrons and people who follow the activities of the center. It has 10 drawings to colour plus a fun and colorful cover.
