From October 3rd to October 6th, IEEE week 2016 was celebrated for the first time in our faculty. In order to provide the student community with a fruitful and different afternoon, the EMBS and IAS Student Branch Chapters organized a Workshop about Proactivity and Entrepreneurship named “Mexe-te” (“Move Yourself!”).
This workshop was given by André Couceiro, a Partner’s Manager at Inspiring Future (a non-profit association, focused on developing innovative projects in the area of juvenile education).
Aimed at younger students, this workshop with full room was a fun way to discuss how to make the most out of the time we have every day and how to make an impression on someone, among other related subjects. The feedback received from the participants was highly positive, as they agreed they would recommend this workshop to others, and would like to be a part of similar initiatives in the future, since it was a useful and interactive activity.

During the celebration of the first ever IEEE Week 2016, from October 3rd to October 6th, the IEEE-IST EMBS Student Chapter and WIE IEEE-IST Affinity Group organized together a self-defense workshop. This workshop was conducted by the Tae Kwon Do Master Ana Paula Silva, and her pupil Gustavo Passos. It started with some Tae Kwon Do techniques in the warming up and was followed by some self-defense techniques. The environment was filled with energy and good mood. The feedback was very positive both from the participants as well as from the workshop conductors.
