The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences (Comillas CIHS) presented the awards for the best End of Degree Projects in STEM Education for the 2022/2023 academic year. These awards, whose main objective is to contribute to the development of quality STEM Education for all, are possible thanks to the support of companies such as Cognizant and Iberdrola.

Six students took part in the competition, all of them committed to developing original, innovative and rigorous projects within the framework of STEM Education.

Silvia, a graduate in Early Childhood Education and Primary Education, received the Cognizant award for the best TFG in STEM Education for the proposal "PreSTEMos nuestra ayuda a Súper Atómicas", an annual didactic programme for the Early Childhood Education stage. Marta, a graduate in Primary Education, received the Iberdrola prize for her project "A small step for science; A big step for humanity", an annual educational programme for Primary Education.

The event was inaugurated by the Dean of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Susanne M. Cadera, who highlighted the value of this recognition as a milestone in the promotion of STEM Education at university. Javier Barroso, from Cognizant, and Carmen de Haro, from Iberdrola, highlighted the work carried out by the Bachelor's Degrees in STEM/STEAM education and their impact on future generations of children.

The conference included the participation of Sonia de la Roz, a specialist in Language and Literature Didactics, who gave a talk in which she articulated an integrating vision between humanities and sciences. She stressed the critical importance of humanities for the development of STEM education, arguing that it is essential to incorporate ethical and humanistic perspectives in order to advance in these fields.

Finally, Marta González and Silvia Alvarado, the award-winning students, made a presentation of their projects, arguing the choice of their proposals.

Congratulations to both of them! Undoubtedly, your projects will make a difference in future STEM profiles.
