Press Summary


Major local newspaper El Día highlighted HCM’s role in such an important world technologic event. The World Skills Foundation, a worldwide tech event has its sights on Spain’s potential, as El Periódico de Canarias echoed, as well. The Canary Islands are the first Spanish region in which WSF and FESTO, have landed with the programme. Most international organisms have projected that STEM occupations will figure out as the most demanded in the upcoming future. With this on the mind, WSF‘s purpose is to raise awareness and vocations on STEM among students.


To this end, FESTO Didactics partnership is a key issue. The aim of HCM and FESTO‘s talks is to introduce the educational kits and programmes set to professors and schools’ managers. The kits do include top-quality didactic material. Then, through bionic lab experiments and teamwork, students will encourage STEM interest. echoed WSF‘s general manager, Elfi Klumpp, words and interest in bringing the programme for the first time to Spain, starting on Tenerife. ‘I visited Tenerife for the first time one year ago. And my expectations have been fully met by the interest shown by professors’, Klumpp stated. Klumpp looks forward to continuing the programme in the future and seeing the first bionics clubs in a year.


Klumpp also thanked Humboldt Cosmos Multiversity’s role in bringing the programme to Tenerife‘The Canary Islands are known worldwide for tourism. But also because of one of the world’s top-3 astrophysics institutes is based here’, said Klumpp.

Juan Antonio González, FESTO’s representative, declared that the project’s aim is to develop teamwork and communication skills among the students involved. ‘It is important that, from very early ages, we learn to work in teams, seeking for other disciplines’ collaboration. Making a computer scientist working with a mechanic, for instance, to offer solutions’, González said.


Klumpp also pointed out WSF‘s will to widen and extend this collaboration to public schools, according to Diario de Avisos. To this end, it is necessary to guarantee public institutions’ full commitment and involvement.
