The exhibition has 180 entries and has already become a reference in the state in innovation and research for young scientists. The projects presented are for students of elementary, middle and higher level. The 2018 edition will bring together students from Pará and other Brazilian states, as well as from Argentina, Colombia, Spain, Ecuador and Mexico.
The initiatives presented at the show have already gained national and international prominence in previous editions. Among the works encouraged by MCTEA and awarded is the use of the açaí core to make drinking water, winner of the Young Scientist award from the federal government in 2013. The design of a life jacket made with miriti fiber, known for its lightness and malleability, it also broke geographical barriers and was presented in Europe as an ecological solution for this type of equipment.
“Supporting actions that foster science and innovation, especially among young people in the region, is exactly one of the ways we have to achieve our mission of building more viable societies”, explains Hydro's Communication Director, Alessandra Fonseca. Hydro and Albras will be present with two stands presenting their recruitment and selection process, their production process and their social projects.
For the MCTEA coordinator, Gilberto Silva, the sponsorship of Hydro and Albras allows children and young people in vulnerable situations to improve their knowledge and develop themselves as students and human beings. “We manage to change the lives of these children and young people, motivating them to get involved in research and to create jobs that can change the reality of society and the environment,” he said.
