Espacios Increíbles is a national, inter-disciplinary competition that combines and celebrates Spanish language learning with aspects of design and technology.
Organised by SCILT, in partnership with the Department of Architecture at the University of Strathclyde, the competition focuses on building valuable employability skills such as team-working, creativity, organisation, communication, problem-solving and many more. Espacios Increíbles aims to broaden learners' horizons and introduce them to potential career pathways in different fields, and not just the traditional careers of teacher or translator.
The final Espacios Increíbles took place over session 2022-23. 11 schools in 10 different local authorities signed up. Schools worked exceptionally hard on their entries. Six groups of S3 learners from schools across six local authorities earned their well-deserved place at the final, which took place on 24 May 2023 at the University of Strathclyde. Finalists presented their designs, in Spanish, to a judging panel, and the winning school was St Luke’s High, East Renfrewshire. Congratulations!
