About Smart Barcelona

GENERAL INFORMATION

We offer interactive events on natural sciences for children of 7-14 years and their parents in Spanish. 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.
WHAT ARE THE EVENTS LIKE

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.

Meanwhile, the parents are involved in adult program - interactive quiz and a short lecture on the same topic that the main program. After the event each participant gets a present — an experimental set you can do at home.
MAIN FEATURES

We chose the current format for a reason. Here are our main points:
1
Interactivity
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
Scientificity
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
Originality
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
Variety
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
Homework
After the event each participant gets a scientific present — an experimental set you can do at home at any time. We also collect the best materials on the topic so that your children can learn on their own.
6
New technologies
In our events we use the newest developments of modern pedagogy: quests and games, gadgets and multimedia.
7
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.
AND ALSO

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

SURGERY

We deploy food production workshop. We create food additives, master preservation processes and learn about the properties and origin of food. All for the sake of a great goal - to create a pizza in a very scientific way.
