Escola de Frikis is an extracurricular activity that is available for any school in the Alicante province that wants to be part of the project, during the academic year.
Escola de Frikis is an initiative that aims at getting girls and boys in primary schools interested in new technology. This project is promoted by the UMH Scientific Park and it is run by the UMH Foundation.
UMH will train and send Monitors from the Escola de Frikis to the schools that take part in the project.
The Monitors will mainly be Engineering Degree students from UMH. They earn money from this to help pay for their studies and they contribute to promoting the STEM academic disciplines among primary school children.
