On June 17th, the ITV unit in Belém, received a visit of students from the Barão do Rio Branco School. The action is part of “Vale Conhecer” Program that aims to contribute to bring ITV closer to the interested public and give visibility to the Institutes activities, especially in Pará.

The visitation program is designed for elementary public schools and aim to awaken science and technology in this generation. According to Vitória Soares, student, “I had no idea that mining could be sustainable. Neither that mining is so important in our daily lives. It was so good to be able to come here”. Besides presenting concepts of sustainable mining, the students were able to find out more about ITV projects and visit the unit’s laboratories.
