research, technology, innovation

EscoLab opens the doors of Catalonia’s state-of-the-art laboratories and research centres and offers an opportunity to converse with investigators working on the advancement of society.

More than 10.000 places to carry out scientific activity free of charge for students of secondary school (ESO), Spanish baccalaureate and vocational training. Proposals that include not only the experimental sciences and technology, but also the social sciences and humanities, architecture, business innovation, journalism, early childhood education and sports sciences, among others.

From October 2016 to April 2017 EscoLab is offering nearly 200 different proposals involving investigators of 55 research groups belonging to universities, science parks, hospitals and companies, all of them ready to satisfy students’ curiosity.

The activities consist in workshops and tours that reveal the immense diversity of laboratories operating today and that offer the chance of direct contact with their multidisciplinary teams and lines of research. You will gain first-hand experience of their new discoveries and enrich the contents of your classroom studies by linking curriculum and the latest scientific developments.

Prior registration is essential and can be submitted as from 7 September 2016. To book your place, you must be a registered user.

All activities are free, and places are limited.

NEW! This year, with the aim of Involving students in reflecting on the role of research and innovation, we are proposing a training course for teachers, that will provide tools for the inquiry-based learning, and to prepare students to take part in decision-making processes that affect their future societies, as an opportunity to introduce RRI (Responsible Innovation research) into science education at secondary schools.

Hola. Tenim assignada l'activitat del càncer pel dia 15/2 per un grup de 4t d'ESO i coincideix amb les proves de competències bàsiques. Podriem canviar el dia amb una altra escola que també la tingués assignada i no haguessin de fer les proves esmentades (per exemple batxillerat, 3r d'ESO)?
