The Doing Sciences Project is an initiative of the Vale Foundation, in partnership with the Educational Community ( CE CEDAC), aims to reflect on new ways to teach and learn Science and Mathematics in the municipal school system of Itabira, allowing students to be protagonists of their learning and to discover pleasure throughout this process, giving Science and Mathematics real meaning.
To achieve this goal, Doing Sciences provides for the systematic training of elementary school teachers and other professionals, such as the staff of the Municipal Secretariat of Education, school managers, and pedagogical coordinators. Besides the educators’ training, it is equally important that the students have access to situations and materials so that they can investigate, think, and systematize new knowledge. In this way, the project also provides content and materials for schools, contributing to the development of investigative activities of real problem situations with students in the areas of Natural Sciences and Mathematics.
