A great group of students from three different schools in the Campos-area gathered for a presentation. This is from Colegio Estadual Jose do Patrocinio.

And finally, teachers from the Campos-area gathered at Colegio Estadual Joao Pessoa at the end of the workshop.

Already from this next semester, Rio de Janeiro state will implement the GSO-methodology in ten high-schools as a pilot project. We are of course simultaneously incredible proud and humble about this. And we are very excited to see Brazil STEAMing into the future with the Global Science Opera!

Brazil GSO-training

In the last week of June, hundreds of teachers, students, administrators and artists in Brazil attended workshops, presentations or meet-and-greet-sessions with the GSO coordinator. The three municipalities Santa Maria Madalena, Sao Francisco de Itabapoana and Sao Joao de Barra have invested large in education for their students by training their teachers in the GSO methodology and sustainable theatre-production. The week culminated with the very first Brazil Science Opera.

Here are just a few photos from the ten days.
