Such activities were very well received, since, according to data from the organization, more than 6,000 people came to Pombo square last Friday.

The Neptunus Project could not miss this important date with science. The researcher Sandra Ceballos was at the stand of the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering Department (University of Cantabria), presenting the project to the many participants who came by. Project activities and pencils were distributed to children, whereas the prototype of the eco-label was presented to all public, since, hopefully, the eco-label will be soon available in fishmongers.
