Last Saturday, May 20th, the Junior Entrepreneurship Show took place in the Municipality of Albergaria-a-Velha. In this event, the students that are part of our programming activities in schools had the opportunity to present their Scratch projects publicly.
The 4th grade children of the municipality were challenged to build a Scratch project, could be an interactive story or a game, in which the theme would be one of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals created by the UN. There were 13 classes involved, 12 1st cycle schools, 2 School Groupings and a total of 217 students involved in this activity.
In order to develop school competitiveness, Inova-Ria had to offer 4 monetary prizes for the schools with the best projects. The jury was composed by Adriana Costa from IERA (Enterprise Incubator of Aveiro Region), Carlos Alves representing Inova-Ria and Rosa Tomás from CIRA (Intermunicipal Community of Aveiro Region).
The 1st Prize of 250€ was awarded to the Avenida School, the 2nd Prize of 150€ was awarded to the 4thB class of the Albergaria-a-Velha Basic School and the two honorable mentions, worth 50€, went to the 4thA class of the Albergaria-a-Velha Basic School and to the Laginhas School Center.
