IT will be promoting again this year two traineeships designed to capture the interest of students from the 10th to the 12th grade for telecommunications. The activities will be developed in Lisbon, July 3-7, and in Covilhã, June 26-30, under the 21st edition of the program “Ciência Viva no Laboratório - Ocupação Científica de Jovens nas Férias”.
In Covilhã, IT together with the Faculdade de Engenharia – Universidade da Beira Interior (UBI), will be hosting a course named “Initiation to Electronics and Telecommunications”. In this 25 hours course the 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 Lisbon, IT is associated with Instituto Superior Técnico to host INTELE1 and INTELE 2 (Introduction to Telecommunications) for the 6th time . During the 30 hours course the students will go through the delights of soldering for the first time electronic components and building their own FM and AM receivers.
In both courses, the students will visit laboratories of different areas of telecommunications and will watch compelling experimental sessions
