KNOWING THE COFFEE FROM AGRICULTURE, ROASTING, DISTRIBUTION AND SALE TO ARRIVE AT SCHOOL: AN APPROACH OF SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENVIRONMENT AND SOCIETY

S. Quezada M. Leite, T. Davel Mognhol

Instituto Federal do Espirito Santo (BRAZIL)
The city of "Venda Nova de Imigrante" has 20,000 inhabitants and is located in the mountainous region of the state of Espirito Santo, Brazil. The local economy is based on Arabica coffee production, which is the second largest producer in Brazil. Culture is the result of Italian immigration occurred in the late 19th century, giving today's activities, habits and festive events with Italian features. In this city, 90% of the economy is based on coffee farming, besides the production of vegetables and fruits, and livestock farmers. However, this city is also a national reference in carrying out Agritourism activities, rural tourism type that combines the experience of everyday agricultural enhancement of the environment. In 1993, the city was recognized as an important center of agritourism by the National Tourism Association, covering some properties, involving farming families and artisanal production activities, with a typical Italian-Brazilian cuisine, such as sausage Socol, special sweets, fruit jellies , digestion liquors, biscuits, etc. In begging of 2015, we implemented a school project in a public school, involving five high school students, one student of chemistry and teachers in the areas of natural sciences and engineers, in order to understand the relationship between coffee production and related glances of science, technology, society and environment. The purpose of this research was to study pedagogical aspects of development of the school project called "Immigrant Café" held in a public school in the municipality of Sale New Immigrants in the State of Espirito Santo - Brazil, since the beginning of 2015.

This research has four eyes, namely:
(a) establishment of the working group;
(b) training of the work team through workshops;
(c) the development of the project;
(d) completion of the project with a local seminar.

This study was limited to analyzing the first two steps of the school project.This study's main benchmarks: Paulo Freire, Glen Aikenhead, Wildson Santos, Decius Auler, Nilbo Ribeiro Nogueira, Celestin Freinet, Anna Maria Pessoa de Carvalho, Lucia Helena Sasseron, Roque Moraes and Maria da Glória Gohn. It is a qualitative research, theoretical and empirical, type case study, based on observations, analysis of official documents, business non-formal education spaces, as well as interviews and questionnaires given to research subjects. During the first stage of work, we realized that the school project was integrated very easily to high school routines. Students were interested to understand the local and regional economic activities, and how they are related to the syllabus worked in the classroom, especially in the disciplines of natural sciences (physics, chemistry, biology, geology and geography). It is notable that most of the students of this school is a farmer's son from the region, so to produce connections between the conceptual content and the economic activities of the city, you can also include other forms of content such as procedural and attitudinal, giving sense of what has been studied in textbooks. As a product of this project, we seek to build a Stories and Memories of Coffee book, containing photographs, reports of experiences of people in the region of recipes, visits tours, etc. We are expecting that the teacher can use this material to perform activities beyond the classroom, providing this way the popularization of science focusing STS / STSE.
