Science. Over 1,500 students took part in the activities from the STEAM programme.

Some 1,600 students in their last year of secondary school or studying baccalaureate courses took part in the yearly science testing ground at the Parc del Fòrum, thanks to the activities for the STEAM programme. The goal of the programme is to promote science among young people, particularly girls, encouraging students to pursue scientific vocations in a recreational manner with academic rigour.

As many as 39 secondary schools in Barcelona and the metropolitan area took part, joined for the first time by schools from the counties of Tarragona as they participated in ten workshops directed by students and teaching staff from the EEBE at the UPC.

The Parc del Fòrum is the second STEAM event planned for 2023, after the one held at the Palau Sant Jordi in February, attended by over 2,100 students. Two further events are planned, with a physics day at the Tibidabo Amusement Park in May and a biology event at Barcelona Zoo in November.
