This pioneer project developed by Science4you in cooperation with DNA Cascais is aimed at the students of the 2nd cycle of schooling. The goal is to promote entrepreneurship and awaken the interest for science.
Students, in teams of 3 or 4 elements, develop a new toy, made with recycled materials, in order to develop their creativity related to science, in an entertaining and motivational way.
Throughout the project DNA Cascais’ and Science4you’s team involved in this project, will follow up and offer their support to the registered teams. At the end of the project the 10 best prototypes will be selected, and will be part of a contest in order to elect the three most original toys, using the following criteria:
- Relevance regarding science and education
- Safe use
- Creativity and uniqueness
