The projects in the competition can also be selected to integrate the National Science Exhibition, organized by the Youth Foundation. The event takes place on the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd of June, at the Alfândega Congress Center in Porto and annually attracts hundreds of visitors from all over the country.
