FIRST LEGO League Euskadi: 10 years of constant evolution

Today I move this week’s post forward to talk, once again (and it won’t be the last one), about the new qualifying tournament of the FIRST LEGO League Euskadi 2018/2019. On the 16th of February many people will meet again at the Europa Palace (Vitoria-Gasteiz), at least 1200 (and that’s only the first ones), to celebrate an event that students between the ages of 6 and 16 from more than 40 schools in Bizkaia, Gipuzkoa and Álava have been preparing since last September. Nerves, desire, illusion, entertainment, fellowship and excitement are present more than ever in a day where the protagonists are the students who show that a challenge is just that, a challenge that we have to face. They make that very clear in their presentations, both of the scientific project and the values as well as during the missions carried out with the robot they have programmed with dedication during months.

It’s an event that the Basque agency of innovation Innobasque-Agencia Vasca de Innovación has been organizing for 10 years; yes, you’ve read that right, 10 are the years we’ve been celebrating this event in which many anonymous people trust. A real achievement for a training program for children and young people from Euskadi who every year show us that the future can be in very good hands.

I encourage you again to take part in the tournament, which in part is carried out by the more than 200 volunteers who mobilize so the event can be a success. To sign up you just have to enter the following link. You are still in time to participate.

Enter the following link;  I encourage you to investigate the canvas that will open through the links.

 

Keep enjoying this incredible experience based on challenges where, thanks to the group learning, children and young people learn essential values for their personal and professional development.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! We’ll go on for 10 more years or for as long as it’s needed.

I am an #flleuskadi volunteer.

Enjoy the day. By the way, will we see each other on Saturday?

Surrounded by entrepreneurs.

Although I’m posting this blog post a couple of weeks later than I wanted to do, I think it’s worth doing it, especially for the E.P. and the initiatives I’m going to talk to you about. The thing is that these past weeks I’ve had the opportunity to go to Copenhagen, Denmark, to participate on the European project EIPTE. I’ve done it with 15 students of the Grade of Primary Education at the University of Deusto, and two colleagues of the same university that, like me, opt for the entrepreneurial education and the teacherpreneurs. But let’s go by parts, I’ll tell you this story later.

May the entrepreneurial spirit be with us

This week I’ve been in some acts that have reminded me how important the entrepreneurial spirit is in our day to day to move forward, to change if necessary, to achieve what we want, to make a difference and to make our dreams come true.

That’s why today I bring you some thoughts about the so-called entrepreneurial spirit and what it helps us to achieve, if we “put our foot into it”.

Have you ever thought about what the entrepreneurial spirit is?

I admit that it is the first time that I think carefully on it. But it is not the first time I refer to it when I talk about entrepreneurship and the person, indeed.

The fact is that this weekend I started thinking about how we could define the so-called entrepreneurial spirit, which, I assure you, is something fundamental for the entrepreneur. Will you accompany me?
