Fundação Getulio Vargas’ School of Applied Mathematics (FGV EMAp) and Center for the Development of Mathematics and Science (FGV CDMC) took part in this year’s ETAPA SigmaCamp, an immersive international scientific program hosted by Brazil for the first time from January 14 to 20. Held at the ETAPA Education Center in Valinhos, Sao Paulo, ETAPA SigmaCamp brought together 60 exceptional students, aged between 14 and 16, from all over the country, chosen through a rigorous selection process.

The speakers included researchers from prestigious universities. The list of participating universities includes Stony Brook University, Brookhaven National Laboratory, Stanford University, Harvard University, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the University of Southern California, the University of Sao Paulo, Campinas State University, the Institute of Pure and Applied Mathematics in Rio de Janeiro, the Ilum School of Science and National Center for Energy and Materials Research (CNPEM) in Campinas, and Alagoas Federal University. Professor Guilherme Tegoni of FGV EMAp taught one of the event’s 10 mini-courses.
