Abstract

This paper presents how the “Playing with Science” workshop was used as an intervention strategy with 37 children and youngsters, between 6 and 17 years of age, from vulnerable socio-economic contexts in Oporto, Portugal, from November 2018 to June 2019. To fight against social exclusion and its reproduction, it was considered important to act in a prevention logic, designing this workshop based on different interests of the public and their needs, and outlining the following objectives: (i) encouraging genuine participation, (ii) promoting empowerment at the individual and community level and (iii) facilitating sustainable development. The work was built on the paradigm of complexity, research-action methodology and used methods of non-formal education, including sociocultural animation. The results showed that, although the objectives have not been fully developed, due to lack of time, there is a potential to use Science to contribute to the prevention of social exclusion.
