The setting up of the cooperative is carried out following the real steps of the process: creation of a product, market study, coming up with a name and a logo for the enterprise, choosing representatives, administrative certificates and the creation of statutes.
In their cooperative the pupils, by classes, manufacture products that are sold once a year, in a market or fair celebrated in Zaragoza. EME favours the development of skills related to communication, analysis of the physical environment, creation, coexistence and citizenship, and new technologies.
It is a program where the different areas included in the curriculum of Primary Education are brought together in a globalized way, easing the development of different basic skills in a practical way.
Each activity will be a new challenge that will start with the integration of cooperative groups and with a process of analysis in order to reach conclusions, both personal and group-wise; the school year finishes with the market and the closing of the accounts. Usually the students choose to donate their profits to a local cause.
