St Peter’s School is a revolutionary educational institution located in Barcelona that emphasizes the integration of science, technology, and humanism in its curriculum. The school aims to prepare students for the future by incorporating the latest technologies and scientific advances into its classrooms, including topics such as blockchain and GPT-3.5.
Science Lab 06
One of the standout features of St Peter’s School is its Science Lab 06, which is the first laboratory for children ages 0-6 and encourages scientific curiosity from a young age.
The school also emphasizes the importance of “Futures Literacy,” a set of skills that help students detect and understand the signs of change in the present, so that they can influence and shape the future. One of the international institutions that has emphasized the importance of futures literacy for future generations is UNESCO. You can watch here one of the activities organized with the Year 5 students in order to foster these mindset.
