Biodiversity, evolution and genetics in the lab
Activities in the scope of the programme Ciência Viva no Laboratório
 

 

  

CIBIO-InBIO researchers have been actively engaged in activities aimed at introducing high school students (15-18 years old) to the professional research environment.

Students are invited to enrol in one-week summer internships, and engage in a series of selected laboratory activities framed within topics ranging from ecology to molecular biology and taking place in CIBIO-InBIO’s facilities.

 

By performing different techniques used in laboratory (and field) work, students are given the opportunity to develop their procedural skills, which are key assets for those who intend on pursuing a scientific career. Furthermore, the authenticity of the activities proposed and the research questions address scaffold the development of scientific reasoning skills and knowledge, which in addition to foster the ability to make informed decisions about science-related issues.

 

This section highlights the various projects funded by Ciência Viva – Agência Nacional para a Cultura Científica, in the context of the programme Ciência Viva no Laboratório - Ocupação Científica de Jovens nas Férias, coordinated and carried out by CIBIO-InBIO’s researchers.
