Inclusive recycling at first SUSKIDS workshop

Los participantes aprenden a crear materiales de construcción con residuos

On March 15th the Building Engineering Research Group (GIIE) organized a training workshop for the creation of building materials with industrial waste.

The workshop was attended by professors and students from the University Expert Course on Inclusive Competencies for Young People with Intellectual Disabilities of the University of Burgos, coordinated by Raquel de la Fuente and José Luis Cuesta.

This course, co-financed by the European Social Fund (ESF), aims to include students with intellectual disabilities in the university environment, encouraging their autonomy and preparation for the labour market while sharing learning and socialization experiences and learning and leisure activities between pupils with and without disabilities, in order to promote mutual enrichment.

SUSKIDS project begins its journey

The partners of the SUSKIDS project met in November 2018 at the University of Burgos (UBU)

The Erasmus+ project “SUSKIDS-Enabling professionals and families to transfer sustainable knowledge and skills to Down Syndrome  individuals”, leaded by the Research Group Building Engineering (GIIE) at the University of Burgos (UBU), started on September 2018, funded within the call “KA201-Strategic Partnership in School Education”.

During the meeting, the partners organised the tasks to be carried out in the following months, to get ready  the materials, methods and resources. Those will be compiled in the form of a Toolkit, aimed at families, teachers and professionals in the field of education as the first product of the project.

Moreover, the partners shared their points of view regarding the functions and features to be presented by the second project output: a Virtual Learning Environment for students with Down Syndrome. In addition, the partners agreed to select the project logo among the different ideas presented by the project coordinator.

At the end of the meeting, the Consortium visited the facilities of the Research Group of Building Engineering, where they learnt about the results obtained in the field of construction with recycled materials and the educational activities that the Research Group is already carrying out with schools that will be also conducted with children with Down Syndrome.
