Competition Research Opportunity Skill Building


FECTI is a technology fair that happens annually in Rio de Janeiro, where students from different schools have the opportunity to showcase their research projects in technology, sciences and innovation. Affiliated with other science fairs around Brazil, FECTI has a Scientific Commission that will judge all student projects presented at the event.

During the 2-day event, students will showcase their projects to the general public and a to panel of judges to be evaluated. At the end of FECTI, the best projects will be awarded and all students will receive a certificate for participating. Students selected to be finalists will have their projects published online in the "Anais da FECTI" Journal.
