CITNM Summer School – The professions and summer holidays

The first edition of the summer course from CITNM Summer School was held between June 27 and July 7. The initiative was very well praised by the students of the secondary schools of Águeda-Sul, with the participation of 25 students from the 8th and 9th grades.

The developed program for this summer course aimed both to provide leisure and fun moments and to inform students about some of the professions they can choose in the future. Thus, in addition to presenting promising professions, the course featured presentations and activities in the areas of:

  • Civil Engineering and Architecture;
  • Management;
  • Law;
  • Design;
  • Cinema;
  • Digital marketing;
  • Neuropsychology;
  • Nutrition;
  • Sports.

In addition, visits were made to FEUP (Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto), FMUP (Faculty of Medicine of the University of Porto), University of Aveiro, to Sakthi Portugal SP21 facilities in Águeda, and Águeda Living Lab.

The closing of the course was marked with a picnic in Alta Vila Park, in Águeda, followed by team building activities, with games and outdoor fun.

The class was always fun and receptive to the planned activities, participating in an active and constructive way. The course’s feedback was very positive, both from the students and parents, which allowed us to conclude that the course was useful and fun.

The 2nd phase of the 1st edition of CITNM Summer School will be held in September this year, this time for 10th and 11th year students.
