Our educational programme at schools

Mosquito Alert, together with the Xatrac Environmental Association and the Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology, launches an innovative project aimed at educational centers with the aim of bringing the Mosquito Alert citizen science platform to a youth audience to encourage experimentation and to awaken scientific vocations among the young.

The challenge is to visit several state institutes and reach out to young people from provinces such as Castellón, Lleida, Baleares, Huesca, Teruel, and Barcelona to raise awareness about the real problem of the tiger mosquito. The activities of this educational program are developed in several sessions of a total of 10 hours, following the methodology of works by projects in the schools. The goal is to encourage participation in citizen science among young people and reach areas where there are few warnings of tiger mosquitoes or their breeding places through the Mosquito Alert app.
