Projecto Quark!

Quark! is an outreach project targeted at excelling high-school students who love physics and want to learn more than what is given to them in their standard curriculum.

On a national call, each year a group of 40 students are selected to participate in this project. On a monthly basis this group  os students geathers together on a week-end at the Phys. Dept. of UC to discuss physics, attend lectures on challenging topics and perform experiments at the Labs and Research Centres hosted at the Phys. Departement.

The Quark! project is coordinated by J.A. Paixão and financed by Ciência Viva - Agência para a Promoção da Cultura Ciêntifica e Tecnológica.

The project maintains a highly active discussion forum on physics with more than 250 registered high-school students.
