MARCH 12TH - MARCH 18TH 2017
Science Days - Brazil
The Science Days 2017 (SD) will be held from March 12th - March 18th in Brazil to raise awareness of the benefits of STEM worldwide.
The concept for the Science Day in the country of Brazil was generated during the first High-Level Project with the Modeling & Simulation experience led by NASA.
Following outreach to a number of partners and stakeholders at all levels and with KSCIA’s partnership with other key organizations and Scientists in Brazil and the United States, a milestone was reached in which during the 78th Session of the Brazil Florida Chamber of Commerce General Assembly adopted resolution (A/BR/USA/RES/78/212) proclaiming the Week of March 12th-March18 annually the Science Days in Brazil.
The Second event will be organised by the Chamber of Commerce in alliance with the Kennedy Space Center International Academy - KSCIA and held at the Brazilian Engineering University Headquarters, with participation by BFCC Member companies, NASA, private sector, academia, and other civil society actors, including girls in science and a special introduction of a guided "Stem Cell" hands on activity.
The Science Days aims to spark interest in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) careers through the appeal of stem cell, simulation, interactive technology, games, and virtual reality. SD promotes the innovation that is happening between Brazil and the United States by providing unprecedented access to the creative professionals and technology available in the market.
SD engages children in STEM experiences through a diverse selection of offerings. From keynote speakers and panels with industry experts to workshops on STEM CELL Technology, kids of all ages will enjoy learning about today’s cutting edge technology and trends.
SD is a celebration of STEM in all its forms and functions.
