Why are we here?

The Science and Engineering Education group is an informal team of Higher Education Teachers and Investigators from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, University of Aveiro, in Portugal. This team is focused on the study and development of skills that are essential to the teaching of engineering related fields, namely the ones closest to mechanical engineering at the university level. To achieve the goal of enhancing these skills, both for teachers and students, this group works in a constant effort to develop activities for the interaction with young students and to attract them to the engineering world.
