Nanociencia para todos is an outreach program arisen in response to the demand on popular science activities from the citizens of Madrid, a demand that we noticed trough the overwhelming attention of our proposals in the Semana de la Ciencia de Madrid. We believe that one of our duties is contributing to the creation of links between Science and Society in our region. Nanociencia para Todos is a regular “Open Days” activity in which we receive mainly students from the last years of high school. In 2016 we received over 300 students, teachers and citizens.
