ARANTES, Shirley de Lima Ferreira  and  PERES, Simone Ouvinha. Programs of scientific initiation for high schools in Brazil: scientific education and social inclusion. Pesqui. prát. psicossociais [online]. 2015, vol.10, n.1, pp. 37-54. ISSN 1809-8908.

This paper presents an overview of the survey of the scientific initiation programs focused in high schools within the Brazil, in qualitative and contrastive perspective, without intending to a critical analysis. It discusses the objectives, inflow strategies and characterization of students inserted, also highlighting, in formal research environments the didactic strategies that are being built for science education and social inclusion of young adults. The SI/IN echoes on the school trajectory, professional and personal, that is importantly associated in students' future projects related to the expectations of entry in the job market. It is necessary to qualify these initiatives, regarding social aspects such as affiliated schools, social position, gender and ethnicity of the students, as a means of providing a greater visibility to the reality of this subject, composing a historical political framework for the participation of young adults, and guided by the proposal of a social inclusion in our brief history in SI/IN programs.
