The Research, Creation and Service programme of the Department of Education

The MMACA is a collaborator of the Research, Creation and Service Programme promoted by the Department of Education.
This program is based on the approach of different types of challenges proposed to students by social, cultural and other entities, from the environment of educational centers, such as neighborhood associations, museums, NGOs... In this sense, the knowledge developed in the resolution of the challenge becomes actions that are projected in the form of service to people, intervention on the environment and specification of ideas with cultural productions. It allows schools to offer globalizing projects, in the autonomous management range available next year.

The program is aimed at all students of 3rd or 4th grade of ESO. Throughout the course the students will have to choose three projects. The projects belong to the following three areas: social and artistic, scientific and technological, and communicative. This allows each student to develop a personal curricular itinerary.

From the MMACA, the challenge of virtualization of some of the modules that we have in our headquarters in Cornellà was proposed and that the students, together with the teachers of the center, deployed in different ways.

In 2021 the participating centres (in two shifts) were:

  • Antoni Cumella Institute
  • Gurb Institute
  • Institute of the Voltegranès
  • Serra de Noet Institute
  • Vilamajor Institute
  • Eixample Institute-School
  • Guindàvols Institute
  • Josep Tapiró Institute
  • Nicholas Copernicus Institute
  • Teresa Pàmies Institute
