About

The importance of understanding the behaviour of young people and awakening their interest for university life, anticipating the exploration of the daily life of this environment and, consequently, helping and motivating the choice of the PUC-Rio as the educational institution in which they will prepare for their professional future, led us to acknowledge the need to create mechanisms that would bring PUC-Rio closer to the school and the society, promoting the articulation of educational actions focused on interaction with the Secondary School.
 
Created in 1992, by Prof. Luís Carlos Scavarda do Carmo, PIUES (Program of Integration University, School and Society) had as a objective, besides the above mentioned points, to value and to diffuse the teaching of sciences, as well as its technological application, through laboratory practices in the areas of Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics and Biology, promoting the approximation between High School students and teachers High School with the University Community.
 
Over the last twenty-five years, this experience has been widen to all areas of the University. Thus, PIUES has been restructured and today it works as a nucleus manager of the relations between PUC-Rio and the High Schools. With an interdepartmental team and a multidisciplinary proposal, PIUES works mainly on three fronts: school students, teachers and coordinators and parents.
 
We invite you to know and participate in our projects!
