Bolarque Museum

CEIP Alcarria in Guadalajara, one of the winning centres of the second edition of the “Conoce a un científic@” (Meet a scientist) competition of the Board of Foundations for Science held in the Bolarque Museum

The aim of this initiative, designed for 9 to 11-year-old primary school students and 11 to 13-year-old secondary students from the Community of Madrid and Castilla-La Mancha, is to teach about scientific work and professionals.

The competition is a joint project of private Spanish foundations who, in collaboration with FECYT, promote the development of STEM skills.

Energy and the Environment

The solution to energy poverty must include the close collaboration between authorities, social organisations and companies.

Today, Madrid held the “Challenge of energy poverty: causes and proposals” event where national and international experts analysed the measures being implemented to reduce energy poverty both globally and in Spain.

Oxford University professor, Brenda Boardman, said that to ease this situation “we must start with the houses in the poorest conditions, without imposing a cost on vulnerable families”.
