CATALONIA: Lending a hand to a local tv station, civic engagement with the community

Updated: May 3

A local TV station is searching for innovative ideas to acquire new equipment.

IT and mechanical manufacturing students and teachers from a VET Centre in the area responded to the call. This is the scenario of a project based learning experience with civic engagement with the community.

What problem or issue has the innovative practice aimed to tackle?


A local television station was using expensive and heavy materials to stabilize their cameras and phones. While collaborating with a local VET centre in work-based learning placements, the idea to work together to design a support made of light, inexpensive and recyclable materials emerged.


What have been the achievements?




  • Environmental sustainability awareness thanks to the use of inexpensive, light and recyclable materials.

  • Cooperation between a VET centre and a public body ( local television station using the equipment ).

  • Improvement of technical and transversal skills through project-based learning (mechanical manufacturing' students designed and made the support using a 3D printer).

Who was involved and how?

Local TV station employees, defining their needs and co-designing the grid.

Students and teachers, designing and making the grid.
