Active participation of NENRE researchers in public program “1000 scientist in 1000 classrooms”

NENRE researchers gave talks at public schools during the sciences week in the “1000 scientist in 1000 classrooms” program. About 10 talks were given to students mostly in 7 and 8 grades, or in secondary schools. In the opportunity, students become aware of the social and economic impact of environmental and natural resource problems faced by our society, and the challenge faced by economic research to contribute to well design public policy to help government and society to solve these issues. Most of these talks were in remote and rural areas, so principals in these schools highlight the importance of our visit to bring the science closer to the children.
