Mireia is a Spanish teacher, who joined the Amgen Teach Community during the third year of the programme.

When asked about Amgen Teach, Mireia explains, "In particular, the neuroscience speech that can be applied to teenage learning has really enhanced my confidence this year as I have some particularly challenging students to motivate."

Mireia also says that during the training she discovered more about the steps involved in developing and launching pharmaceutical products, and highlighted "the importance of making the students aware of the chemistry behind the drugs we use in everyday life."

Currently, Mireia is planning to engage her students in lab activities, using resources from Amgen Teach. She plans to challenge the students through debate cards as well as discussing how to generate random data for analysis, using different contexts.
