The documentary on the first pilot experiences conducted by the Climantica project in the educational system in Cuba is already available on Climántica TV On 26, 27 and 28 May 2008, Climantica started its pilot activities in the educational system in Cuba. The Chair of Energy Education hosted by the Pedagogical University, Havana City, Cuba asked Climantica project to be introduced as a part of a reform implemented in the syllabus of the subject “Energy Education” taught in Secondary Education in “Ciudad Escolar Libertad”. Two types of activities were organized with 14 to 16 year-old students in order to check out their background knowledge:
- Small group activity. It consisted of two different stages: In the first, students worked in small groups in order to study a card exemplifying a particular issue. The work group entitled the card giving reasons for that title according to what the card suggested to them in relation to causes and/or impacts of climate change. Finally, all the groups shared their points of view with the other groups.
- Classroom activity. It was aimed at producing a diagram with pieces as if it were a dominoes game. This diagram summarized the group arguments on climate change and its relationship with its causes and impacts.
Climantica activities carried out in Cuba finished on 28 May with a lecture on the basics of this project in the 2nd conference of the Energy Education Group.
