Outreach activities from the UP SPIE Student Chapter @ FCUP's Open Days

The Faculty of Science of University of Porto (FCUP) hosts the “Open Days” to schools. This initiative is aimed at secondary school students, especially those who are in the process of vocational guidance. The goal is to provide students with a direct contact with the FCUP training opportunities and information on the professional outputs given by graduations and master degrees. The “Open Days” are performed during two days, organized by tours to the various laboratories of the Faculty.

The visits are organized by area and require prior registration in each area who are interested in visiting [Biology, Physics and Astronomy, Geosciences, Environment and Spatial Planning (Geology, Environment, Geographic Engineering, Food Engineering, Agricultural Engineering, Landscape Architecture); Computing, Mathematics, Chemistry and Biochemistry]. All students and teachers have informational materials about the courses available at FCUP. This activity aims to set up an informal table in the department stand with SPIE promotional materials, handouts, and membership applications during the event.
