"Maré de Ciência" Project

Project with young people of Sines and Santiago do Cacém Municipalities in Portugal

Literally translated to "Tide of Science", Cartas com Ciência's project "Maré de Ciência" implemented two lasting letter exchange programmes in Agrupamento de Escolas de Santo André and Associação Caboverdiana de Sines e Santiago do Cacém throughout the 2023/2024 school year. This project won (3rd place) the 1st edition of GAMMA Community Platform.

For 18 of the 22 children that participated, it was the first time they met a scientist!

Student's Feedback

"I hope our next letter is as cool as this one" 

"I joined this project with the aim of learning new things (...) I've already learnt a few things and I'm curious to learn more.” 

"I did some research and thought it was super interesting how an experiment could be so simple.” 

"It was a new and very fun activity that made me more interested to study about the theme, and I am very lazy. I loved it and would repeat.”
