The Luis Pasteur Student Science Club, of the Cecilia Braslavsky Institute for Teacher Training (ISFD) in Aristópolo del Valle, representing the clubs of the district, participated in the National Meeting of the Science Clubs, an event that took place in the town of Huerta Grande, Córdoba on the 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th of June .
Science clubs operate informally and depend on the provincial Ministry of Education, Science and Technology, in coordination with the ProPACyT (Provincial Program for Scientific and Technological Activities). 90% of the 23 clubs formed in the county actively address issues related to environmental education.
The event was organized by the Science Clubs Network based on managing the expression and audiovisual content of the scientific portfolio. 26 science clubs from all over the country have come together to present and improve their science projects with scientists and to participate in various programmed activities.
During the meeting, the visit of the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, Daniel Filmos, was received. The Louis Pasteur Student Science Club has been selected by ProPACyT Coordinator, Mónica Estigarribia, and Misiones Undersecretary for Science and Technology, Christian Descat.
The club is made up of teacher training students and was represented by Katia Cottola, Sofia Foster, Pablo López García and counseling teacher José Daniel Acosta. The proposal made referred to the “field trip as an educational strategy”.
During the meeting, activities and expertise were implemented that would strengthen the relationship between each club, stimulate the establishment of relations and enhance future cooperation. An exhibition of cooperative games, an oral and written communication workshop, a visit to the Nagwan Teca Natural and Cultural Reserve, and a presentation of the “Mateo” citizen science project were also held, coordinated by the National University of Córdoba and CONICET.
