The “Cientificamente Provável” is a joint initiative of the State Secretariat of Education, through the School Libraries’ Network, and the State Secretariat for Science, Technology and Higher Education. It aims to intensify the cooperation and the promotion of knowledge and to contribute to the enrichment of students’ training paths by establishing closer links between higher education institutions and basic and secondary schools, through the intermediation of school libraries. Additional goals include:
• to develop young people’s skills in research, communication and literacy of information;
• to involve young people in citizen science dynamics and collaborative learning practices.
CIAS joined this initiative having established partnerships, in the present school year, with a number of schools.
On the 12th of February, Vítor Matos visited the Escola Secundária de Oliveira do Hospital to present the activity “Quando os esqueletos saem do armário: uma viagem pela Antropologia Biológica“. The presentations were given to 45 students from the 12º and 10º grade.
