A new academic year has begun at the University of Navarra and hundreds of first-year students and their families have participated in the Welcome Day. The event began at 10 a.m. at the University's Sports Center with the greeting of the Rector María Iraburu and with the intervention of some professors of the academic center such as Alfonso Sánchez-Tabernero, Rosalía Baena, Ricardo Piñero and Ignacio López-Goñi who have transmitted to the attendees some keys for the beginning of the course.

The students were then able to learn about other experiences offered by the University of Navarra to complete their education, such as languages, sports, volunteering, scientific and cultural activities.

academic year. In addition, attendees were able to contemplate some pieces of the collection, such as an eagle, a kite and an eagle owl. There were also experimental activities in chemistry, physics and biology: from viewing insects, mollusks and crustaceans with a magnifying glass; chemistry experiments to understand everyday materials such as thermochromics, photochromics, materials with memory, and hydrogels; physics experiments to understand how proximity cards and waves work; and some microbiology demonstrations.

Finally, the Science Museum has provided some infographics on science that explain the science behind everyday aspects such as a cell phone, a car, a bar code, a beer, a yogurt, a fruit, a loaf of bread or tap water.

The afternoon concluded with a lunch at the Polideportivo and a concert at 19:30 at the Museo Universidad de Navarra by the Orquesta Sinfónica Universidad de Navarra and the Orquesta Juvenil Nacional del SODRE (Uruguay).
