The Museum of Tomorrow, in Rio de Janeiro, will start the training and knowledge exchange projects promoted in this first semester. In partnership with Instituto Ling, the foundation has launched a free training project for Arte do Amanhã, focused on art and technology. Formative Paths is the name of the museum’s new training program, which is aimed at teachers from both public and private schools.
Inspira Sensia is a basic education teacher training project designed and implemented by the Museum, which aims to encourage more lively science teaching, bringing schools, museums and universities closer together.
The museum’s general director, Bruna Bava, highlighted that the foundation wants to know how society wants to reach the tomorrow it wants as well as build a future in a sustainable and collective way. “To get there tomorrow, it is not enough to be a museum that only shows ideas. We need to be an open space to participate in building these tomorrows, in order to invite people to think together. An essential part of this is our training programs,” he said.

“The aim of this program is to encourage vibrant science teaching that brings schools, museums, and universities closer together. The idea is to discuss how we can democratize access to science, and how we can succeed in thinking about science as an essential vector in our transformation as a country.
In 2023, the seventh edition of the program will be held online for up to 400 teachers from the five regions of the country. Teachers from all over the country can participate in the selection, which will be made by lottery, taking into account aspects of gender, race and region. The 400 selected professors will participate in a cycle of five simultaneous meetings, on Saturdays, from 9 am to 1 pm, in the virtual room of Inspira Sencia, on June 3, 10 and 17 and July 1 and 8.
Each meeting will have lectures on key topics in science and components of the enquiry-teaching approach as well as interactions between professors with an emphasis on sharing experiences among them. At the end, everyone who attended at least 75% of the training – four meetings – will be issued a certificate of participation.
The program also encourages networking among primary education teachers across the country with an emphasis on content multiplication, other opportunities for a teaching career and topics related to the relationship between gender and science. Registration begins next Friday (7).
