Second Educational Morning reinforces civic formation in our students
The second “Educational Morning” of the year was held at both campuses, with the aim of complementing the work carried out in the school concerning civic education, presenting strategies to promote competences related to this field, from home.
During this activity, carried out by our Department of Integral Support (DAI), the topic discussed was “Teaching history for the future: forming citizens in the classroom”, in charge of the Social Sciences Department Heads.
It is worth mentioning that this initiative seeks to help parents to develop civic skills and encourage the participation of young people and children, understanding that part of their training involves becoming citizens aware of their duties and rights, so that tomorrow they can contribute to society in the best way, from their professional activities.
Undoubtedly an important activity for our students!
Lintac students participate in challenge at Universidad de los Andes
10th grade students from Lo Barnechea campus participated in the “Universidad de los Andes challengers”, learning about “The keys to entrepreneurship” and demonstrating all their skills.
The students who participated in this activity were: Jorge Wilson, Tomás Rodríguez, René Montoya, Irina Gavrilov, Sin Park, Connor Dean, Ignacio Arenas, Nikolas Virreira, Borja Cazañas, Adrei Guerb and Nicolás Jacard.
“As a group, we woke up quite early to arrive at the Universidad de los Andes, at 9:00 am. At that time, each of the groups attending had to register in order to demonstrate their presence. At the time of registration, they were assigned a color (red, blue or yellow) different from each of the group members. This color represented which class one belonged to; I was red. After each one was assigned a color, we went to our respective classrooms”, said one of our entrepreneur students.
After attending several meetings and classes in which our students – together with sharing ideas with the other mates – learned about execution techniques of an elevator pitch; about projections and budgets; economy concepts; sustainability and social impact of an entrepreneurship, they are expected to use what they learned and make a presentation in front of a jury on May 30th, a great idea that can become a social project, of innovation or an entrepreneurship, having the possibility of earning 2,000,000 to implement it.
“Our experience at the Universidad de los Andes was enriching, since we had the opportunity, not only to learn concepts of general economy such as finance, investment, accounting, administration, etc. (themes that are fundamental in our lives and the future), but also had the opportunity to meet and share with students from other schools (…). After a long experience at Universidad de los Andes, we realized how much we learned in such a few hours. This experience is highly recommended for anyone who wants to be informed with concepts that will help them in the future,” concluded our students.
We wish you all the best in this great challenge! Go Lintac!
