The IES Carpetania is located in the town of Yepes, Toledo. It is a small center, in a rural environment, where High School and Vocational Training are taught. In the center, educational research and innovation projects are carried out in different subjects, since we consider that this fosters interdisciplinary work between teachers from different departments, being very enriching for students.
Participation in the #MelanogasterCTF project offers us the possibility of working on the contents of the 4th ESO genetics block, with a different approach, using the project’s teaching materials and then putting them into practice in the laboratory.
During 2019-2020 academic year we were accepted for an oral communication to participate in the Scientific Congress for Schoolchildren of the National Museum of Natural Sciences of Madrid, to be held in April, and where students have the opportunity to experience contact with the reality of the science world . We also were accepted to participate in the scientific fair “ConCienciArte”, within the XI Madrid Science Fair, where we intended to make the Citizen Science project #MelanogasterCTF visible.
