Researchers at Schools

Cientista Regressa à Escola – 3rd edition

“Scientist Returns to School” (translated from the Portuguese ‘Cientista Regressa à Escola’ and abbreviated CRE) is a science education program for primary school students in the 4th grade (9-10 years old). Through this program, scientists return to their former primary school to carry out 90-minute science workshops with the children in their homeland. Priority is given to scientists from low population density areas and schools with poor levels of academic achievement. Over the course of the first and second editions within RAISE, 83 CRE workshops took place in schools in mainland Portugal and islands. The third edition of the program, that kicked off on the 5th of February in Porto, includes around 120 science workshops to be held between February and May across the country, including municipalities that will receive the program for the first time, such as Lagoa and Faro (Algarve) and the eastern coast of Madeira island (Machico).
