More than 500 students, teachers and disseminators attended the meeting of 'Science in Action', in the Cubic Building of Viladecans and the awards ceremony that took place in the Atrium Theater. Together they presented some 167 projects with activities and outreach work of nine countries (Spain, Portugal, Argentina, Mexico, Andorra, France, United States, Chile, and Peru), scientific demonstrations carried out by teachers and students of primary and secondary school and university, to the public.

On Saturday there were also activities in other parts of the municipality: 'La bodegueta de Viladecans' and 'Tasca Celler 1830' that hosted the activity 'Pint of science: come and learn science by taking a beer', with the shows 'Magic and mates in the bar', by Fernando Blasco (Polytechnic University of Madrid) and Miguel Durán (University of Girona), and 'Café, copa y física', by Rafael García Molina (University of Murcia).

'Ciencia en Acción' has a great impact on the population to increase public appreciation for science and scientific vocations, as well as involving the entire Spanish educational and scientific community as well as the disseminators. It also enhances innovation in science education and prepares teachers and educators.

As a closing conference 'The periodic table, a cultural icon' was given by Santiago Alvarez, a member of the Institute of Theoretical Chemistry I Computer at the University of Barcelona, after which we proceeded to the awards ceremony.

We heartily thank the City of Viladecans, and all collaborating entities, for the great collaboration. Without their support the event would not have been possible.
