Together with Professor Maritza Peña, she carried out the Building Citizens Through Science program, which aimed to increase the ethical civic competencies of students through exercising scientific knowledge in social areas, such as the environment, public safety, road accidents, and quality of life. Thanks to such projects, Camacho is familiar with teaching physics and mathematics to raise awareness among young people about real problems and help them understand their role in solving them. This skill is crucial to creating plans and resources that lead us to new post-pandemic learning.[
When considering educational innovation, technology is not the only ingredient, Camacho argues, nor are the numbers. Although poverty can be expressed in figures, understanding these numbers needs the human context to be understood integrally. Understanding the how and why of the situation is a collective problem requiring collaboration in the post-pandemic world.
If you want to know more about how technology, innovation, physics, and mathematics can be practically applied to develop new educational proposals and are interested in the ethical training of students, do not miss our next webinar on Tuesday, January 25 at 16:00 hours (Mexico City time). To maximize the opportunity for dialogue, thoroughly resolve your questions, or if you cannot attend the event, send your questions or requests in advance by accessing this form.
