The purpose is to contribute to the awareness of children and adolescents about environment-related issues, by encouraging scientific knowledge based on experiments.
Coordinated by ArcelorMittal Foundation, the program is developed at public schools, which receive educational material to be used in the classroom. Throughout the school year, teachers instruct students to carry out activities based on the theme defined for the annual edition and to include aspects related to citizenship into their reflection.
Competing at local and national level, participants are divided into two categories: Child Scientist, involving classes from 1st to 5th grade and Young Scientist, from 6th to 9th grade. The program is also carried out with employees’ children of this age group.
With this initiative, ArcelorMittal intends to form a team of child and young scientists to apply actions that contribute to the environment.
