Virtual Mobility to Pachino

Lego robots

Each and every interaction between humans and computers is governed by code. Whether you create a web app, follow GPS directions when driving or wish to revolutionise social interactions. Coding is the literacy of today and it helps practice 21st century skills such as problem solving, team work and analytical thinking. In this virtual mobility Italian students prepared a couple of workshops about Lego EV3 robot and how to use its different sensors.

When this virtual mobility finished, students who participated in this activity presented to the rest of the students of the project what they learned. Each of the participants explained to the rest of the members of their group, in a practical way, the contents of each one of the workshops held during the mobility.

How to make a memorable pitch

Involved participants were provided with the necessary skills to improve their techniques and fluency to make an impressive presentation in English of their business ideas and their projects. That’s a crucial skill not only in their academic day to day at school, but also for their future. Nowadays, job interviews are increasingly more important than curriculum vitae. Candidates for a job have 3 or 4 minutes to convince the interviewer that they are the best option for that position. In other words, they must make a pitch selling themselves. Students who participate in this project will learn various techniques to make a memorable pitch and to communicate better. This way they will enhance their employability and may get better jobs

Finalists in the JA regional competition


Eco2meter is a social and sustainable project that consists of creating devices connected to a mobile application to detect the level of CO2 emissions and other polluting gases. By doing so, we make people aware of the carbon footprint we produce and its harmful effects.

Eco2Spot is a small portable device to take it everywhere, with the application you can see: the amount of CO2 in the air, statistics and tips to reduce the carbon footprint, a real-time map with the CO2 level of the data collected from others ... This product is aimed at families, individuals and municipalities, to obtain information on air quality in user neighbourhoods of the municipality
With our project we want to help people to prevent diseases that affect human health (caused by the high level of gas emissions), in addition to the devastating effect it has on climate change.


We have designed small individual wind turbines for houses, which will serve to have their own energy, reduce the high costs of renewable energy companies and, above all, help reduce the greenhouse effect caused by non-renewable energies.
Our wind turbine is manufactured with different materials, among others, carbon fiber, fiberglass, aluminum and metal. These materials are used to manufacture the rotor blades, the rotor, the hub cover, bearing reducer and cover. Various electrical components such as a multiplier, a generator, conductors of the generated energy, a control panel, as well as a cooling system are also required.

Best innovative project

JA-YE Company of the Year competition

More than 200 young entrepreneurs, representing 40 student companies, gathered in Lille this week to compete in the Grand Finale of JA Europe’s Company of the Year Competition. Throughout the school year, the students went through the JA Company programme, an entrepreneurship education programme that bridges the gap between classrooms and workplaces. As such, teachers and business volunteers play a key role in the delivery of the programme. JA provides teachers with a series of learning-by-doing business, economics and entrepreneurship activities, while business volunteers visit the classrooms to share their experience and mentor students on career opportunities and the necessary skills required to match their ambitions.

Delta Innovative Award

After winning the national mini-company competition, the WaterSave components were being prepared during the month of June for the European final in Lille. They presented  WaterLight, a device which helps save 50% of water consumption, and raise awareness about water consumption. They had to defend their project at three levels: in the presentation before an audience of some 400 people; at a stand they set up to show the jury what the project consisted of and in the Interview Panel with the jury. The fact of having carried out the project within the framework of the Erasmus + KA229 program was an added value that the jury took into account.

Mobility in Lisbon

In Quinta Regaleira

Coding with Arduino

The main topic for this mobility was learning to code with Arduino. Arduino is an open-source hardware and software company, project and user community that designs and manufactures single-board microcontrollers and microcontroller kits for building digital devices and interactive objects that can sense and control both physically and digitally.

The Portuguese students presented the Arduino UNO board, as well as different sensors and explained how the programming platform works. The students made a small project with LEDs of different colours. After that, we held a second workshop on Arduino: students had to make a more complex project to build a traffic light in which the lights were turned on and off at varying intervals.

Awesome projects

On Wednesday, Portuguese students presented some robotic projects that they had developed the previous year. One of them was an Unusual Glove for People with Disabilities; a robotic glove that allowed to transform the body language made by hand into sounds to be able to communicate with the blind We found it a fascinating project and all the students could prove how this glove worked.

Another awesome project presented by the students was INETESAT III, a satellite where all the hardware is in a capsule similar to a can of soda. The Inetesat III  captured images taken 1 km high on the Island of Santa Maria, Azores.

Autonomous car race

On Wednesday afternoon we had a race competition with the autonomous cars that each international students team had prepared in the morning. The competition consisted of a robot race (each robot had two engines and three wheels) in two circuits in which the robots had to avoid obstacles along the way to the finish line.

the first of them we learned to use the ultrasonic sensor to measure the length of the elbow and verify that the Vitruvian proportion was fulfilled ie 4 times the length of the elbow is equal to the height of a person. The results of the measurements coincided to a large extent with the proportions of Vitruvius, which caused a great surprise among the students

Company programme competition

Winners of the Competition

The winning mini-company was WaterSave, which, within the framework of the Erasmus + programme, developed a product in the form of a traffic light to make users aware of the waste of water in the shower and reduce their consumption.To create their product, they had to use Arduino sensors and design the components using a 3D printer

Its creators, 4th ESO students from the Bell-lloc School of Girona, will represent Spain at the European Final JA-YE Europe Company of the Year Competition which will take place in Lille (France) from July 3-5. More than 200 young people from 35 countries will meet in this competition organized by Junior Achievement Europa in which the best 2019 project will be selected.

European Year of Cultural Heritage

The aim of the European Year of Cultural Heritage is to encourage more people to discover and engage with Europe's cultural heritage, and to reinforce a sense of belonging to a common European space. The slogan for the year is: Our heritage: where the past meets the future.
