New edition of the Explainers Program. Course 2020-21

We are starting a new edition of the Explainers program, this year in a different format.

Due to the exceptional situation caused by the health emergency, the program will last for two quarters, from January to May 2021, and will be partially developed online.

We want to expand the program with a special edition of co-creation, where the Explainers will develop, together with other co-creators and experts, the content, experiments and informative materials around 4 spaces of the museum: the Vertical Garden, the museum entrance, the Garden of Archimedes and the solar sunflowers.

From January to March the co-creation phase will take place and from April the Explainers will do the participation sessions in the museum where they will explain these 4 spaces to the visitors based on the experiments and materials they have created.



  1. In the Knowledge Phase, the Explainers will learn about the different spaces and the topics on which they will work; They will also seek inspiration from other projects to focus the second phase.
  2. In the Co-creation Phase, they will apply various group creativity techniques and learn to prototype their ideas in order to put them to the test.
  3. In the Co-Construction Phase, they will test the experiences that they have previously designed and make the necessary adjustments to the experiences and the mobile device.
  4. From there they will begin to act as Explainers for the visitors of CosmoCaixa as a bridge between the contents of the museum and the public, with the materials they will have created together.
