Climate sciences should be considered an important topic in the better knowledge of our world. It is especially important in the climate change paradigm in which we are involved. Despite its importance, the climate is not a relevant topic in high education in Spain, and it is only considered in the curriculum as a secondary topic in some academic subjects. From a professional point of view, climate is a multidisciplinary topic highly connected with maths and technology. In this work, we present a proposal that tries to connect the climate sciences with STEM competencies in high education. The proposal is based on the use of Arduino boards to obtain climatic data and involved different subjects such as technology, maths, or sciences. The proposal is composed of several different activities which could be independently set up in different subjects. However, we highly the potentiality of the application of the complete proposal to obtain an integrated educational experience. The complete proposal tries to link different branches of knowledge in science and technology, which are generally not so close in high education, to obtain meaningful learning and to illustrate the multidisciplinarity inherent in science.
