LabEnClass. The energy of the future:
from the lab to the classroom

LabEnClass is a science outreach project that brings our research in the field of energy from the labs to the classrooms of primary and secondary schools.

The project, prepared in collaboration with Funbrain, and with ICMAB Researcher Mariano Campoy-Quiles, was awarded with a FGCSIC "Cuenta la Ciencia" grant in 2019.

The project aims at bringing the research performed at our labs to the classrooms with attractive experiments related to energy prepared especially for the scholars.

With this project, we intend to connect science and experimentation performed at our resarch centre with the young students, and show science as something alive, in continuous progress and as a tool for the advancement and improvement of society

Topics addressed in the project

Materials abundancy and sustainability

Sun as a source of energy

New biodegradable and organic materials to be used for energy applications

Properties of light and photonic crystals to manipulate light

Flexible, semi-transparent and colorful photovoltaic energy

Emerging technologies for the conversion of heat into electricity: thermoelectricity

Funbrain is a science outreach company that brings science to the schools since 2004. Funbrain has been generating and executing projects for children and young people between 4 and 16 years old since 2004, to disseminate science, and to promote positive attitudes that educate in values, in a relaxed, attractive and fun way. Some of its collaborators include other research centers, schools, town halls, foundations, etc.

Its mission is to build an "Educated Society" where the school, the public sector and the companies work together to promote and disseminate knowledge, inside and outside the classrooms.
