Carla Sales stated that participation in the program is a unique opportunity for students and teachers. “By participating in research projects, students learn to formulate questions, pose hypotheses, conduct experiments, collect and analyze data. These skills are essential to the development of logical thinking and problem-solving ability, essential skills for any field of study or career.

For her, another relevant aspect is the development of social and emotional skills. “Students have the opportunity to work in teams, share ideas, discuss and collaborate to solve problems. These experiences promote improved communication and negotiation skills, respect for differences and building healthy interpersonal relationships,” noted Carla.
