Morelia, Michigan, June 24, 2024.- The Morelia UNAM Cultural Center, of the National Graduate School (ENES Morelia UNAM), will host the “9th Science Fair of the State of Michoacan” of the Program for Talent Accreditation (PAUTA), on June 25 and 26 in the facilities of this center Cultural and in Calzada Fray Antonio de San Miguel.

In a press release, 172 boys, girls, teenagers and young adults from the municipalities of Morelia, Quicío, Huitamo, Tozantla and Tarimbaro will participate in the 9th PAUTA Michoacán Science Fair. 90 science projects will be presented at four different levels: preschool, primary, secondary and high school.

The goal of the PAUTA program is to enhance the scientific skills of girls, boys, adolescents and young people, through workshops, with interest and talent in science. These are workshops in which they must solve challenges, experiment, investigate, and everything that is included in the scientific method to develop critical thinking.

During the exhibition, girls, boys, teens, and young adults will share their projects with their peers, with the scientific community, and with the general population. In addition, participants will put their communication skills into practice, analyze their own projects and receive feedback from judges visiting researchers from different universities.

Several academic activities will be carried out within the framework of the exhibition. On Tuesday, June 25, Dr. Mario Rodríguez Martínez, researcher at the Geospatial Sciences Laboratory of ENES Morelia UNAM, will give a lecture entitled “The Dance of the Sun and the Moon”. On Wednesday, June 26, Master of Science Luis María Suárez Rodríguez from the Laboratory of Molecular Physiology of Plants of the University of Michoacana will present the conference “Geniuses in Training: Biotechnology at Work”.

It should be noted that the PAUTA program began its operations at the national level in 2007 at the Institute of Nuclear Sciences, at the suggestion of two prominent scientists at UNAM: Alejandro Frank and Jorge Hirsch. In 2008, the project arrived in Michoacán, and since 2017, the Morelia UNAM Cultural Center has been the official home of this very important national scientific programme.

ENES Morelia, through UNAM Centro Culture Morelia, works hard to continue supporting projects such as PAUTA Michoacán, with the aim of disseminating and promoting science among children, adolescents, young people and the general public.

Four years ago, the development of social impact research projects was implemented within the PAUTA model so that students could truly experience scientific research and propose solutions to their community’s problems. As an additional innovation, a “mentoring programme” has been implemented so that PAUTA members can contact leading scientists, who accompany and advise them as they develop their scientific projects. The 9th PAUTA Michoacán Science Fair will be held on June 25-26 at the UNAM Centro Culture Morelia facilities and at Calzada Fray Antonio de San Miguel.
