CIS-Iscte presented projects at school visit

On November 16, around 40 students from Colégio Internacional de Vilamoura, from the 10th, 11th and 12th grades, took part in an educational visit to Iscte - University Institute of Lisbon, with the aim of exploring the research facilities and getting to know the degree courses on offer.

The event, which took place between 2pm and 5pm, allowed students to explore unique experiences by visiting LAPSO, the psychology laboratory; Vitruvius FabLab, a multifunctional space that supports research projects in the areas of architecture, design, arts, multimedia and others; and the Mixed Reality Lab, a laboratory equipped with advanced technology for semi-immersive virtual reality experiences.

With an emphasis on interactivity, the students took part in scientific hands-on initiatives, exploring the relationship between music and the brain through 3 different activities, as well as getting involved in a quiz from the kNOwHATE project, focused on online hate speech. These activities featured work developed at CIS-Iscte and involved students from the PhD in Psychology.

The visit was promoted by the Research Support Office and organized by the COM'Investigar group with the support of Iscte's Student Access and Integration Unit. This was a rich and diverse educational experience, with the potential to strengthen ties between Iscte and educational institutions and to foster interest in research and academic education.
