The Madeira Chemistry Research Centre (CQM), within the scope of its project “Bridging the Gap® (BtG®) - Edição Aldeias”, has been at Baú da Cultura on the 8th of February 2020, for an activity to disseminate science to nearly 40 participants of the Associação de Escuteiros de Portugal, Grupo 24-Funchal.
During the morning, the children had the opportunity to perform various experimental activities, attend and participate in small lectures in the area of Chemistry and Biochemistry. This new format of the activity, which was first tested at EBSPS, aims to reach the largest possible number of educational establishments in the most peripheral areas in the region, complementing the different activities underway in the BtG® project started by CQM in 2015.
The BtG® project is open to all interested parties and offers personalized packages of science dissemination activities in schools, houses and other private or public entities. For appointments or more information, interested parties may contact the project coordinator via email () or telephone (291 705 150) and visit the project's website (https://cqm.uma.pt/dissemination/bridging-the-gap).
