INESC TEC welcomed young researchers

“Creating the Future”. This is the motto of the Summer Internships: Ciência Viva no Laboratório, a programme aimed at 9th grade, high school and vocational education students that provides activities during the summer vacation. This way, younger people can witness scientific research carried out in Portugal and the generation of knowledge in real time. INESC TEC joined this initiative between July 4 and 8, by opening the doors of some of the Institute’s laboratories and providing the students with a true experience of scientific work with professional researchers.

“Science and the power to cast the die of the future” was the challenge introduced to the seven young researchers who selected INESC TEC for the internships. For a week, the students were in direct contact with different scientific areas, followed the daily life of researchers and learned about career options, gathering inspiration to eventually think and structure an innovative idea for the future. The programme included visits to workspaces, practical laboratory sessions and theoretical-practical modules, in fields like Energy and Electric Vehicles, Fibre Optics, Interaction and Games, Computing, Wireless Communications, etc. The internships ended with the presentation of business proposals to a panel of INESC TEC evaluators.

The summer of 2022 concludes the 26th edition of a programme that has been promoting the experimental teaching of science and involving younger people in scientific activities, with more than 17.300 participants.
