The aim of Science and School is to boost scientific and technical vocation and interest in science among school pupils.  We believe scientific knowledge and talent can and should form the socioeconomic basis of Catalonia. We help citizens to develop critical thinking and problem-solving capacities, essential qualities in an ever-changing world.

Scientific vocations Programmes

We collaborate with local government and different institutions to strengthen the role of science in schools, thereby boosting vocation in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).

We help to update teacher’s knowledge so that they can introduce the scientific method in schools.

We take scientists to classrooms to encourage children to opt for a career in science.
