Unveiling tomorrow’s Barcelona: Y9 students revolutionize the city with smart solutions

Exciting news from our MYP 4 students! Before the holidays, they took on the challenge of envisioning a Smart(er) Barcelona in their interdisciplinary project on Smart Cities.

With the clear mission to use new technologies to minimize environmental impact and social inequalities, the students worked collaboratively to craft compelling sales pitches. These pitches aimed to attract both private and public sector investors, showcasing innovative solutions to two distinct problems from different disciplines.

In a brief 3-minute window, our students demonstrated their scientific and technological knowledge, emphasizing the realistic and feasible aspects of their proposals in terms of financing, logistics, and utility. The result? A visionary blend of ideas from technology, science, social studies, and geography, offering Barcelona a glimpse into a future that is equitable, energy-efficient, and inclusive.
