Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation

The Brazilian Agricultural Research Corporation (EMBRAPA) in Londrina, Brazil has hosted fourteen high school interns since 2002.

Established in 1975, EMBRAPA's mission is to provide feasible solutions for the sustainable development of Brazilian agribusiness through knowledge and technology generation and transfer.

EMBRAPA carries out research and development concerning the soybean plant.

Interns at EMBRAPA work alongside renowned international researchers and experts - like Dr. Amélio Dall 'Agnol, Dr. Francismar Marcellino, Dr. Alexandre Nepomuceno, and Dr. Eliseu Binneck - in EMBRAPA's research labs in Londrina.

The students also have the opportunity to travel around Brazil with their host families and colleagues to see the Iguazu Falls, play soccer, and learn Capoeira, a traditional Brazilian martial art and dance.
