More about STEAMConf 2024

It is necessary, now more than ever, to bridge the gap between the classroom and the real world to search for solutions to real challenges, cultivating deep and transferable knowledge and an inter-generational commitment between the adults of today and those of tomorrow. Bring the educational community together with all its transformative potential, with this initiative, promoting the discovery of and interaction between leading research and learning environments.

STEAMConf Barcelona 2024 insists again on PBL (problem based learning) and cross-disciplinary learning in schools. It is within this framework that STEAMConf Barcelona 2024 incorporates immersive sessions led by students to hear their voices in the face of challenges and the story of their experiences of the learning process.

STEAMConf Barcelona 2024 intends to reach a more global audience by bringing together players who instigate change in educational environments around the world, while encouraging participation in a collective experience: presentations, workshops, group sessions, performances, dialogues, local experiences, new colleagues, new spaces and new initiatives, with a common denominator: not wanting anyone to remain passive, inactive or indifferent!
