The fifth partner school in Spain!

Dear MathCityMap Community,

We are delighted to welcome a new partner school, the secondary school IES Eugenio Frutos in Guareña (Spain). The math teacher Beatriz Blanco, who also initiated the application process, has sent us lots of exciting information about her city and her experiences with MathCityMap so far, which we would now like to share with you.

The town of Guareña has around 7000 inhabitants and its main economic activity is agriculture. Recently, however, an archaeological site called Turuñuelo was found, which has made the town one of the most interesting places in the region.

Beatriz Blanco and her school regularly use MathCityMap for outdoor learning in their town and the surrounding cities. Their main trail (code: 392194) is called “Una mirada matemática sobre Guareña”, which translates as “A mathematical look at Guareña”. This trail has already been used by various class levels and has been downloaded over 171 times in total.

There is also a trail in Spanish and English in a nearby town (Villanueva de la Serena), which the pupils of IES Eugenio Frutos can discover on their annual excursion to the town. The trail code in spanish is 199746.

The school was recognized for its great mathematical achievements by the regional government and several articles were subsequently written about it.

The package with the official partner school badge and the MCM measuring instruments is already on its way to Spain and we are already looking forward to receiving further applications from all over the world.

All further information on the partner school program and the requirements for the application can be found in the article on the first MCM partner school as well as on the homepage of our MaSCE³ project.
