V mc2J - Fifth edition of the mini-conference of science by Youth

This year’s edition of the mini-conference of Science by youth (mini-congresso de ciência por jovens, mc2J) at Exploratório Ciência Viva, Coimbra, will be held on the 16th may under the theme: “Science and Farming, united for a sustainable development?" (Ciência e agricultura, união para um desenvolvimento sustentável?), celebrating the International Year of Family Farming, 2014. Once again, the organization results from a collaboration between teachers and students from the neighboring D. Duarte Secondary School with the staff of Exploratório. Secondary school students from all over the country are challenged to develop (and present) a short research on a topic relating the value of family farming to Science.

KiiCS ended at the end of January 2015: the last month was dedicated to reporting and ensuring the project’s legacy. Nine art-science-business innovation incubators were created thanks to KiiCS, and some of the project ideas developed by participants are living on and might turn into businesses in the future. A great arts & science incubation guide is available to all online.
