More than 50 university students participated as a team supporting students of this School, to receive about 300 students from the primary schools: Prof. Juan Garza Fernandez and Lic. Santiago Roel, as well as the Secondary School No. 18  Cincuentenario de la Expropiación Petrolera.

Our guests learned the difference between concave and convex mirrors, fluorescence and phosphorescence and the importance of stereoscopic vision; also they learned how the balloons fly and about the helicopters and airplane’s flight, the science behind soap bubbles, among many other topics.

The Group of Popular Science “Physics Pato2”, appreciates to the Dean of the School Rogelio Juvenal Sepúlveda Guerrero and all the personnel that contributed with the success of this project.
