Social Action


UAB research teams

This project provides UAB research teams with insights into opportunities in line with the type of collaboration.

Collaborating research teams are asked to draft a proposal of activities and/or content to work on with the children. Once the collaborating research team has identified the themes, scopes or information to develop, the advisory research group is tasked with turning this material into workshops for primary school children. Finally, the student coordinators and volunteers for each school put the designed workshops into practice. The teams are also required to make a video presentation to provide the children with first-hand knowledge of scientific work, and to organise and promote the closing activity at the team's facilities on the UAB campus.

This type of relationship has been established with the Computer Vision Centre (CVC), the Institute of Environmental Science and Technology (ICTA), the Institute of Neurosciences (INc) and the Centre for Research in Agricultural Genomics (CRAG).

The advisory research groups are tasked with ensuring a good pedagogical adaptation of the dedicated content proposed by the collaborating research groups. They are also responsible for providing training to the student coordinators of the workshops to help them in their work. Advisory groups to date have been: The Research Centre for Science and Mathematics Education (CRECIM), the Research Group on the Teaching of Social Sciences (GREDICS) and the Research and Study Centre for an Inclusive Society (CERSIN).  

The assessor research group IGOP has designed a self-evaluation model that will enable the tracking of the CROMA 2.0 programme heads. To that end, information collection and systematisation has been designed, as well as a system of indicators that enables the collection and analysis of information on the impact of the programme's actions.

In short, this participation makes it possible to implement outreach and social return actions by research terms that now offer a learning opportunity and impact the creation of defined proposals to adapt scientific knowledge to primary school education.
