SENER and the SENER Foundation encourage careers in technology and science

The SENER Foundation and the SENER once more took part in a joint project called "A challenge for science" to promote scientific careers among young people and adolescents in schools. This time, it was the 14-15-year-old students at the Urdaneta School in Loiu (Basque Country, Spain) who presented their solutions to the challenges posed by SENER.

The presentation of the finalists and the award ceremony took place at the Urdaneta School on May 6. The jury consisted of SENER's International General Manager and the trustee of the SENER Foundation, Itziar Urrutia; the Business Development Manager for Architecture and Urban Planning at SENER, Juan Francisco Paz; the Head of "A Challenge for Science" at SENER, and an engineer in SENER's Mobility Technology Unit, Oiane Niebla; the Mayor of Loiu, Josu Andoni Begoña; and Beatriz Barrio, an Inbound Marketing consultant and creator of Think on Marketing. Also taking part were Irantzu Eskurza and Markel Vicente, teachers of Physics and Chemistry at the Urdaneta School, who coordinated the activity within the school.

On this occasion, "A challenge for science" awarded the prize to the team consisting of Lucía Gardoki, Endika Cuesta, Emma López, Ibone Zárraga and Naira Lasa, for their solution involving the use of wastewater in electricity production. A runner-up prize was also presented to the student team made up of Lucía Riaño, Irati Lerchundi, Lucía Floristán, Olivia Santisteban, Elena Flórez and Laura Axpe, for their project on air purification in cities.

Some of the challenges posed to the Urdaneta School were: show the benefits of solar thermal technology to the different stakeholders involved; ways to purify air to get rid of pollution in cities; how to minimize the risk of spreading a virus on public transportation; and how to provide urban services more efficiently. The young participants were thus able to see how science, technology and engineering serve people in order to improve their quality of life.

"A challenge for science" involves having SENER professionals present real challenges to secondary-school students that are tailored to their curriculums. The students then have to find solutions to the problems faced daily by an engineering company. Subsequently, the students' solutions are evaluated by SENER personnel and other external collaborators with expertise in these areas of engineering.
