Just like in previous editions, Instituto TIM is sponsoring the 14th National Week of Science and Technology (SNCT). The initiative is coordinated by the Ministry of Science, Technology, Innovations and Communications (MCTIC), and this year it counts on over 7.4 thousand activities of science and technology disclosure in 258 municipalities of the entire country, held between October 23rd and 29th. Leandro Guerra, representative of Instituto TIM, participated in the opening of the 14th SNCT, which happened on the 23rd.
This year’s theme of SNCT is “Mathematics is in everything” – a theme also valued by Instituto TIM, which carries out two projects focused on mathematics education: Instituto TIM-OBMEP Scholarships and O Círculo da Matemática do Brasil. Together, the projects have benefited over 187 thousand Brazilian students.
“Instituto TIM has a very strong focus on education and strengthens resources and strategies for the democratization of science, technology and innovation. Therefore, we could not fail to participate in this important event promoted by the Ministry of Science, Technology, Innovation and Communications. We are certain that the teaching of mathematics is a very important part of Brazil’s development process,” says the president of Instituto TIM, Manoel Horacio.
