Industrial heritage is another axis for visits and workshops designed for students of different levels
The director of
Ponferrada Energy Museum, Yasodhara López, presented this Thursday the
new educational programming for the 2021/2022 school year, in which
science and technology will play a leading role. Next to
industrial heritage, These will be the three axes on which all the programming directed at Infant, Primary, Secondary, Baccalaureate and Vocational Training (FP) entities and centers revolves.
Accompanied by Marta Ferrero and Beatriz Taladrid, from the didactic team, López unveiled a
didactic offer that seeks to bring scientific and technological content closer through different proposals and dynamics, under the generic title ‘Enter, discover, explore, investigate and learn’. As an example, the
MicroMundo @ ULE workshop, developed in collaboration with the University of León (ULE), in which the participants of Baccalaureate and formative cycles will be able to learn about microbial diversity or
visit ‘Inventors and inventors’, in which the Primary students discover different inventors through the machines that the central houses.
In this sense, the program offers the possibility of
combine the different activities so that each group can design their own training experience. All the educational resources used are prepared by the Museum’s Science Education and Didactics Area and are aimed at the
dissemination of simple scientific concepts using the museum, a former thermal power plant, as a platform.
Although in its conception the program is designed to take place in the museum’s facilities, those in charge offer one more year the
possibility to travel and carry out the experimental workshops in the different training centers. The program is also available telematically so that it can be completed remotely.
