In this club students become involved with problems affecting nations at the global level, affecting people in small towns and cities. They explore how their development is impeded and how it affects them at an international level. Through critical thinking and investigation they have the opportunity to comment and provide possible solutions to the problem raised.
It is our intention to broaden their horizons so that they can master the aspects of the global platform, developing and strengthening in the areas of research, speech and knowledge. Our objective is based in the intercultural and social exchange of the town/cities, providing at the same time the chance to develop in the areas of research and practicing the use of oratory and argumentative tools, which undoubtedly will open intellectual doors in the future. Through the act of debating, students build a bridge to further develop their academic and personal qualities.
The robotics club is a space for young people with passion for learning and innovation, where they can develop technological and mechanical skills.
