Young Portuguese scientists sensitize children to Technology

The project is launched on Tuesday, World Portuguese Language Day.

A project led by two young Portuguese scientists in Germany aims to sensitize children from Portuguese-speaking countries to choose higher education and, in particular, careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.

Led by Mariana Alves and Rafael Galupa, researchers at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Germany, the “Letters with Science” project aims to foster epistolary exchanges that mitigate barriers and prejudices related to higher education and research careers, promoting scientific literacy and the Portuguese language.

 

According to those responsible for the project, the students’ academic and/or recreational interests, for example, animals, space or the human body, and football, reading or music, will be taken into account in the choice of the researchers with whom they will correspond.

The promotion of Portuguese as a language of knowledge and opportunities, which is spoken by more than 250 million people worldwide, is another of the virtualities highlighted in the “Letters with Science” project.

The project has a partnership with the Gulbenkian Institute of Science and the University of Aveiro (Portugal), Osuwela (Mozambican NGO), Tundavala Polytechnic Institute (Lubango, Angola), CISION and Idea Factory (Portugal).
