Workshop Research Opportunity Skill Building Summer Program


The Escola de Física Contemporânea (EFC), originally called the Advanced Physics School, is an extension activity that takes place annually at the Physics Institute of São Carlos (IFSC), part of the University of São Paulo (USP). EFC's main goal is to enable talented students to gain exposure to the world of research by coming into contact with some of the country's most prestigious research groups and understanding the importance of science and technology in developing knowledge and wealth in the country. In addition, it is intended to expose students to entrepreneurship, reinforcing the important contributions that Physics' professionals can make when engaging in research associated with the industrial sector, whether inside or outside the academic environment. After a week of lectures, lab visits and workshops, students will develop and present a science project.
