Abstract

In this work, an experience of service learning carried out at the school of Ingenieros de Caminos, Canales y Puertos of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, is presented. Undergraduate students have visited two high schools to present their Final Degree Projects (civil engineering curriculum) to the high school students. Three kind of reviews have been recollected: the review of the faculty advisors, the (peer) review among the undergraduate students and the review of the high school students. This experience have shown the usefulness of peer-review among students and the strength of service learning activities to improve the motivation and the learning process.
