The Office of Citizen Science and the Education Consortium of Barcelona are organising a programme to introduce citizen science in schools.

Teachers and students from education centres in Barcelona are taking part in a 15-hour pilot scheme in which they will collaborate with several real scientific research projects in Barcelona. The educational community is in contact with scientists from various research centres and universities to make them aware of the scientific sampling method and learn how to use mobile and web apps to gather data and analyse the results. Classroom time is also used to expand on the work in school and propose and carry out action based on the conclusions.

The students in each course are selected according to their interest through the call of the Consortium of Education of Barcelona. The distribution of the projects by educational centers is as follows:
