Activity P10. Film festival about Global Warming. Spain

Last May we organized a film festival about Global Warming. Different groups of Secondary students watched selected films about topics related to the environment: “Wall-E”, “The boy who harnessed the wind” and “Erin Brockovich”.

The films were screened during tutoring hours and in the Ethical Values class. Two groups of 1st year students saw “Wall-E” and “The boy who harnessed the wind” respectively. Groups of 2nd and 4th year saw “The boy who harnessed the wind” and a group of 3rd year saw “Erin Brockovich”.

Activity P3. Visit to Sotavento (Galicia)

From April 1 to April 3, students of Technology and Technology teachers (Montaña Rodríguez and Antonio Salas) have visited the Experimental Wind Power Station in Sotavento (Galicia, Spain).

Sotavento Galicia, S.A. was established in 1997 and promoted by the Government of Galicia. This partnership created the Sotavento Experimental Wind Farm, a unique facility that, besides having common business objectives such as projects, should make additional efforts focused on three areas: investigation, education-information and training.

Three days of enriching activities on the knowledge of this Renewable Energy (see Activities page in left side menu: Activity P3).

Meeting in Prague…

The Erasmus + transnational meetings provide an unparalleled opportunity for our students to enjoy a unique experience. They not only visit a European city, guided by fellow hosts of the same age, but also live with boys and girls from the 5 countries that are part of the project, with whom they share work time at the institute and leisure time.
In addition, all students who participate in these projects must present a paper in front of their classmates, and they must do so in English. It is a challenge for them, and it is very satisfying to see how they face it and how they enjoy the experience.

Our second meeting took place in Prague. It was a really good experience, where all the students talked about the use of electric cars, about the bioclimatic arquitecture, and about the different energetic policies in each country (see Activities page in left side menu: Activity P17, Activity P16, Activity P18, Activity P4 and Activity C2).

But it was not all work. We visited the 5 synagogues that make up the “Jewish Museum” of the city, we visited the castle and the Cathedral of San Vito, we enjoyed the work of Alfons Muha in the museum that bears his name, and we had the privilege of being received by the Councilman of Education of Prague in the old Town Hall of the city, located in the emblematic building that contains the famous clock tower.
