Intellectual online family tournament by Smart Barcelona

Every time we see each other in our science events, many of you ask for adult science workshops. We really regret to tell you we are not offering such events yet, but we enjoy so much being with you and your kids, that we want to tell you about our new, unique in the country and free family activity: the Online Family Tournament!

We are sure you know a lot about nature, astronomy, physics, chemistry… well, about science basically. Would you dare to prove it from the confidence from your sofa? At the Online Family Tournament, everybody can participate and face the funniest and most surprising questions ever about science… and much more: what do parrots do, unlike any other bird species? What inspired the ever-moving hair of Ariel, the little mermaid? How would you tell between a dromedary and a bactrian?

We are going to have a great time with our science speakers in a tournament where the least important is to win… despite there will be a big prize! All participants will get a discount code to use in our products, and the absolute winner will get one of the "Science at Home" kits totally free. Not bad!
The Online Family Tournament is a one-hour activity, totally free and produced with our best clients and friends in mind. As always, you will find Smart Barcelona's identity signatures: a very special sense of humor, the maximum scientific standard and a lot of surprises!

Keep in mind that, despite being an online event, attendance is limited, so we can offer an optimal experience. Please, check the calendar to see our next activities and register before it's too late!

Registration for the event

Participation is free, registration is required.

How is the event going?

The first Smart Thursday in the form of an Online Family Tournament was one of the most popular events during the Science Week and the European Researcher's Night on November 26, 2020.

If you missed our first Smart Thursday, here is the link to watch it again on Youtube and participate, but without the opportunity to win a prize!

More about the Smart Barcelona project and principles


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.
