About Smart Barcelona

It is wonderful when real young scientists (students and graduate students) tell children about natural sciences. It's even more wonderful when kids do their own experiments instead of watching an animator do it. Do you want to transmit your passion for science? Click on the photo

We offer interactive events and courses on natural sciences for children of 5-6, 7-10 and 11-13 years and their parents.
Each event is a brief introductory course on chemistry, physics, biology, medicine and other sciences.

In January 2019 we launched the first event for children and their parents from and around Barcelona. The scientific monitors who guide children into the programs are real young scientists from the best universities in Barcelona.

Each program consists of four labs where children conduct various experiments. Each team spends 20 minutes in each lab — this time is enough to get the theory and make an experiment.

If the program has a slot for kids 5-6 years old, we make for them a separate program with simpler but spectacular experiences, in which children can sometimes participate. The show also contains interactive games and dances.

Meanwhile, the parents are involved in adult program - interactive quiz and a short lecture on the same topic that the main program.


In the laboratories, classes are taught in Spanish or Catalan. Sometimes there are also groups in English - check the schedule! You also can gather a group of 16 children (for example, in your school), and then the classes in the laboratories will be in English. Please contact us if you are interested in it!

We chose the current format for a reason. Here are our main points:
  • 1
    We think that children understand natural sciences better when they conduct experiments. Once a child operates a mannequin, he/she learns more about human body than after a lecture on anatomy.
  • 2
    We don't consider science throwing dry ice into water, loud explosions or colorful fire. Our programs are real: from the experiments on genetics with drosophilae to chemical synthesis of esters. Our monitors are not animators, but students and alumni of the science faculties of leading universities of Barcelona.
  • 3
    We never conduct "classic" experiments that have been shown to children in different science shows for years. Our developers are always thinking of something new to surprise you with. It's unlikely that you'll see what your children perform at our events anywhere else.
  • 4
    Every month we present a brand new program. We make it in order for you not to get bored and visit us regularly. Thus, in a year or two your child will form a complete scientific picture of the world.
  • 5
    New technologies
    In our events we use the newest developments of modern pedagogy: quests and games, gadgets and multimedia.
  • 6
    Program for parents
    Children always look up to you. That is why we always make a separate program for the parents where you can learn new things and have fun at the same time.

We just love science. We think that there are few things in the world that are as beautiful and exciting as science. This is what helps us create new programs and refine on our product.

Past programs

None of our programs are repeated.
Here you can see which programs we have already run.
April 15, Saturday
scientific workshop for children 5-6, 7-10 and 11-13 years
Real experiments from the arsenal of modern scientists in various fields - from microbiology to genetics.

This time we decided to show that biology is far from just a field science. We will equip 4 laboratories with the latest technology and study the living world at all levels of its organization - from individual cells to entire populations.
March 2023
scientific workshop for children 5-6, 7-10 and 11-13 years
Ships, planes, trains and rockets - it's time to figure out how it works!

We will establish a design bureau, where we'll not only understand the device design, but also collect several working prototypes.
February 2023
scientific workshop for children 5-6, 7-10 and 11-13 years
Has your child ever wanted to be a real doctor?

Everything will be almost real: preoperative examinations, diagnosis, anesthesia, work with surgical instruments. Unless the patient is not completely alive.
December 2022
scientific workshop for children 5-6, 7-10 and 11-13 years
A program for those who have long dreamed of being inside a chemical laboratory with all the necessary equipment and, of course, experiments.
November 2022
interactive science workshop for children 7-14 years old
This program will attract all passionate collectors of beautiful stones and shells. We will excavate, find the ancient city, learn its history through curious finds, and master the methods of cleaning and conserving the found treasures.
October 2022
interactive science workshop for children 7-14 years old
People talk a lot about environmental issues, but do little. At our workshops, children do: soil cleanup experiments with their own hands, assemble green power plants, save birds from an oil spill, and develop technology for the industrial separation of plastic.
February 2022
interactive science workshop for children 7-14 years old
Petri dishes, microbiological loops and millions of microscopic organisms to be studied.
November 2021
interactive science workshop for children 7-14 years old
The program is about the chemistry around us and how to create this chemistry.

In two hours we will synthesize perfumes, create paints, jewelry and something from food chemistry.
We will find out where the human heart and kidneys are located, how our brain works, and how triceps differs from quadriceps.

We look at the main organs as the details of the mechanism and analyze the principles of their work.



Irons and electric cars, batteries and wireless charging - it's time to figure out how it works.

We will assemble a chemical current source, tame lightning, master the wireless transmission of energy and light the light in the dark.



We study physics by creating spy gadgets. Wireless cipher transmitters, recording devices, glasses for displaying invisible images and metal detectors.



We will dive into the labs of the greatest scientists and reinvent internal combustion engine, microscope, antibiotics and polymers!



Every month we have a completely new program.
You can find the agenda of the nearest programs on the page EVENTS.

Next science workshop in Barcelona

-, Saturday
scientific workshop for children 5-6, 7-10 and 11-13 years
We will understand the chemical and physical properties of food, create gummy bears, assemble our own devices for extracting odors, figure it out in food additives and create them in the laboratory, study the physical and chemical properties of familiar products, and even prepare rations for astronauts. Science has never tasted so good!
