Scientific presentations are often left to professionals, but more than 9,300 middle school and high school students attended Science Days on March 27th and 28th in the city of Fortaleza to learn about Science and the future of Space exploration.
Co-sponsored by the Michaelis Foundation, the STEM/Space event featured hundreds of innovative projects, exhibitions and students' experiments.
“Being able to have this experience of actually presenting our experiments to thousands of students was so amazing,” said Giovanna Machado, director of the Future Scientists program.
"Participating at Science Days in Fortaleza was unforgettable. This event gave me the experience of being able to share and expose to other people a little bit of my project, the Future Scientists program and what I love about Science! The most interesting thing was to be able to see in the eyes of the people to whom I presented, especially to the children, the brilliance in knowing that Science is present in so many things and that it can be used for more innumerable others. Also important was the interaction we had with the other exhibitors, international speakers and with other students at the tables next to me! All committed to transmit what they believe, what I also believe! Without a doubt, Science Days was memorable for me." said Vitoria Rocha, member of the Future Scientists.
