What do the schools of the Barcelona’s Board of Commerce and socio-constructivist training have in common? This is the objective of my research, setting my attention on the Chemistry applied to the arts and Experimental Physics schools, in the period 1826-1851. This paper considers the historical education context between mid- eighteenth century and mid-nineteenth century and outlines the basic pillars of socio- constructivist training from 1960s. Knowledge contextualization is the common point of these two models of training (Chemistry applied to the arts school and socio- constructivist). Chemistry applied to the arts school was founded in order to give support to the most important industries on these years in Catalonia (textile, dyeing and winegrowers industries).
