FIFE is an annual event organized by the undergraduate students at the University of Campinas Optical Society of America (OSA-SCU) that aims to disseminate the Scientific Method and concepts in Modern Physics to high school students.
During the week-long event, high school students are divided into groups to participate in theoretical classes and experiments at the Gleb Wataghin Institute of Physics teaching laboratories on some of the problems proposed by the organizing committee. They all involve concepts of Modern Physics that are not commonly addressed in the high school curriculum. In addition to contact with these concepts, the student will receive an introduction to the analysis and treatment of experimental data. At the end of the event, selected projects will be presented to the public.
