Developed by the PET-QUÍMICA group in partnership with the Department of Education in Curitiba (SME), the project focuses on helping fundamental school teachers to motivate children to the challenges of science. The initiative was launched on August 6 at the Auditorium of DQUI, with the presence of the teachers enrolled in the first module and representatives of SME and UFPR.

The initiative is a follow-up of the work of PET Chemistry in the Program “Scientists at School“, promoted by the Secretary of Education in 2017 and 2018, with the aim of bringing scientists and science closer to the elementary school students.
