Posmex had its physical area expanded with the acquisition of the room that once housed the secretariat of the Graduate Program in Teaching Science (PPGEC). Thus, the Program has a large coordination room and another room of equal size for secretarial work, as well as the classroom for 20 students and a living room, which has space reserved for five computers, with access to the internet, which are used by students of the program.
