19 March 2021
Escola EDUMAR, Castelldefels (Barcelona)
This project aimed to explain vaccines and the science that surrounds them to students in the 6th year of primary education. With the principal objective of promoting knowledge and critical thinking about vaccination, students learned about the history of vaccines, analyzed the current situation regarding the COVID-19 vaccine, and learned to discuss the ethical aspects of it.
This was a cross-disciplinary project, incorporating bioethics in a number of areas and seeking to improve student skills in language, mathematics, knowledge of the world, ethics and digital competencies.
