More than a thousand students from eleven autonomous communities participated this year in the fourth Efigy Technology Competition, which seeks to promote STEM professions and energy efficiency among young people.
With support from the Naturgy Foundation, students from eight Spanish schools are taking part in the latest edition of the FIRST LEGO League Challenge that promotes female talent and an interest in technology among young girls. The final of this student competition will take place on 2 April in Torremolinos, Malaga.
As part of the Sustainable Construction and Building Renovation Course of its Vocational Training for Employability Programme, the Naturgy Foundation took part in a face-to-face training session at the Technical Seminars aimed at students studying for their Higher Technical Certificate in Construction Projects at the Escola del Treball, a benchmark post-compulsory training centre in Barcelona.
The Foundation is continuing in its task of promoting ongoing training in energy, and in September will launch its first e-learning course on renewable gas. It will be accessible both on its website and via the platforms of the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya, with which it has signed a collaboration agreement to foster improved employability in our sector.
The Efigy Education initiative is the learning programme taught by the Naturgy Foundation in schools which also aims to promote technology-based professions.
The Naturgy Foundation introduces the youngest generations to the key aspects of the energy transition and new technologies such as renewable gas and its role in the circular economy.
The Chairman of Naturgy, Francisco Reynés, today met with students from the Efigy Girls initiative: eight groups of girls sponsored by the foundation to participate in the technology competition FIRST LEGO League Spain. Of the one thousand participating teams, two of the Efigy Girls teams qualified for the Spanish final.
