Youth Science Association

The Portuguese Youth Science Association (AJC) is a Portuguese group of young people committed to promote science among the youth. It was created in the 1980’s and since then it has been formed and managed by young people, being the only association of this kind. In the early years we hosted several activities in diverse fields of science for different audiences spread around the country. The early founders are some of the best Portuguese scientists. AJC is also a member of MILSET.
