PAUTA works to promote talent for science and mathematics among children and young people. The project organises workshops, courses and activities for them, their parents and teachers, in which knowledge is built through enquiry, experimentation and analysis. PAUTA science clubs have an important presence in economically disadvantaged communities, with the participation of indigenous children, migrants, as well as children with disabilities. Our two flagship projects, Project Discovery and Borderlands Science engaged over 3 million participants.
