Among the activities at SEK-Alboran over their STEAM week is a Hackathon held today at the school, featuring Fran Acién, former SEK-Alborán student, who is acting as one of the competition’s judges. This year is the fourth edition of this initiative and students from year 3 and 4 of Secondary School and Baccalaureate have to finish their project in a record time of under 8 hours. This year’s theme is to look for a solution to one of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Fran finished his studies at SEK-Alborán in 2016 (during his time at the school he won two chemical engineering competitions) and is currently studying Telecommunications at the Polytechnic University of Madrid. In addition to being one of the judges, he will give a talk to the students about university career’s guidance.
