  2. Going with the Flow: How Blood Clots Form
  3. From the Lab to the computer: combining methods to understand protein structure, function, and protein-ligand interactions.
  4. Microbiome: Genomics and bioinformatics
  5. To be defined 
  6. To be defined 

Requirements: Having completed the second year of high school 

Language: Spanish. Some of the material could be in English (presentations, videos, etc)

Limited spots are available!

Open Call: Coming soon!

Description: The CdeCMx Challenge's goal is to open an online space for collaboration where high school and undergraduate students can learn and develop skills to solve problems. Instructors from the USA and Mexico will assist students in solving problems; programming, data science, machine learning, and their intersection with other areas of knowledge. The students will have access to a series of educational materials to help them prepare before the Challenge week starts.

 Limited spots are available!

When: Every Wednesday of May and June 2020 at 6 p.m. CDT

Where: Zoom and Facebook Live

Registration: Event open to the public through our social networks. If you have previously participated in Clubes de Ciencia Mexico, you will receive an email with a personalized invitation and a zoom link.

Description: Experts teach webinars in different areas such as virology, immunology, medical device manufacturing, and evolutionary biology. The goal of these webinars is to communicate recent research and explain basic concepts for a better understanding of issues related to the current pandemic situation.  

One hundred places are reserved for participants to interact with the speakers through a Zoom session. Students who register to at least four webinars will get a certificate of participation.
