Following the great success of previous editions, IT will be promoting again this year between June 27th and July 1st, two traineeships designed to capture the interest of secondary students from the 10th to the 12th grade for telecommunications. The activities will be developed in Lisbon and in Covilhã, under the program Ciência Viva no Laboratório - Ocupação Científica de Jovens nas Férias.
In Lisbon, IT is associated with Instituto Superior Técnico to host INTELE (Introduction to Telecommunications) for the 5th time . During a complete week (30 hours), the students will go through the delights of soldering for the first time electronic components and building their own FM and AM receivers.
In Covilhã, IT together with the Faculdade de Engenharia – Universidade da Beira Interior, will be hosting a similar course named Initiation to Electronics and Telecommunications. It also spans a week (25 hours) and students will be immersed in the context of research and development of IT and participating in experiences, allowing them to contact with some of the innovative applications from electronics and communication networks.
In both courses, the students will visit laboratories of different areas of telecommunications and will watch compelling experimental sessions. The initiative in Covihã also includes sports and cultural activities.
