On Monday, 18 November, the President of the Scientia Private Foundation, Ricard Huguet, and the Managing Director of the Naturgy Foundation, María Eugenia Coronado, signed a partnership agreement to launch the “Girls First” initiative as part of the First Lego League in Spain.
The Efigy Education initiative, which will run throughout the entire school year, also aims to promote technological professions among students. The Naturgy Foundation will introduce the youngest generations to the key aspects of the energy transition and new technology such as renewable gas and its role in the circular economy.
With the aim of educating and raising awareness in society about issues relating to energy and using it efficiently, the Naturgy Foundation has implemented a programme of educational activities for 3 to 16-year-olds at the wind farm in Merengue (in Plasencia, Cáceres) and the photovoltaic plant in Carpio (in Carpio del Tajo, Toledo) as part of its educational programme.
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.
