Experimento in Brazil

Inquisitively discovering the world

What smells, can you recognize? Experimento teaches students to use all their senses, rather than simply memorizing facts.

  • Experimento implemented in 2015
  • Deployment in Brazil began in São Paulo before spreading to many other parts of the country
  • Program executed by Siemens Fundação Brazil
  • Integrated into teacher certification and continuing education at Universidade Metodista de São Paulo in 14 locations across the country
  • Teacher training conducted through a wide network of partners
  • Implemented mostly in primary schools
  • Focus on public schools
  • Advanced training for around 2,390 educators across the country so far
  • Around 138,000* children reached in 14 states

* The number assumes that every instructed kindergarten or elementary school teacher shares the knowledge 5 times with one group or class, and a subject teacher shares it 5 times with two classes.

Country-specific developments

  • Curriculum adapted for primary schools
    Siemens Fundação Brazil adapted Experimento as a teacher training program in the country. This began with the age group 4+ using the proven multiplier principle. Later, teachers at Colégio Visconde de Porto Seguro and Universida de Metodista de São Paulo received Experimento training. These educators then pass on the new knowledge to other schools in the area. Experimento | 8+ is also set to be introduced in Brazil in the future. Due to the wide geographic distribution of the project’s two main partners, the education program can quickly spread to the country’s public schools.

More information on the STEM Network, the role of individual partners, and current news and events can be found on our Spanish microsite for Experimento in Latin America.
