FameLab700

Nuno Martins, a PhD student from CBMA, is one of the finalists of Portugal FameLab 2018, which will take place on April 12th at Coliseu dos Recreios in Lisbon, within the National Geographic Summit.

FameLab 2018 semi-final took place on March 18th, at Pavilhão do Conhecimento - Centro Ciência Viva, in Lisbon, with 24 candidates from the regional qualifiers of Braga, Porto, Aveiro, Coimbra, Lisbon and Algarve.
 
FameLab is the most popular international scientific communication contest, which aims to stimulate good communication of scientific topics, to arouse public curiosity and to develop the skills of those who already have an interest and talent to communicate science.
 
Created in 2005 by the Cheltenham Science Festival, FameLab gained worldwide expression with the support of the British Council, which expanded it to more than 30 competing countries, from Europe to Hong Kong. In Portugal, FameLab is organized by Ciência Viva - National Agency for Scientific and Technological Culture and the British Council, in partnership with Universities and Centros Ciência Viva throughout the country.

Eliminatória Regional do FameLab 2018

caras fame









Mais do que o convite para assistir a Eliminatória Regional do FameLab 2018, considerado o mais famoso concurso de comunicação de ciência do mundo, esta é uma convocatória de apoio aos candidatos que de alguma forma estão ou estiveram ligados ao Departamento de Biologia.

Mais do que o convite para assistir a Eliminatória Regional do FameLab 2018, considerado o mais famoso concurso de comunicação de ciência do mundo, esta é uma convocatória de apoio os candidatos que de alguma forma estão ou estiveram ligados ao Departamento de Biologia.

Dos doze selecionados para a sessão presencial estão dois alunos de doutoramento do CBMA (Ana Margarida Pereira e o Nuno Martins), uma aluna do Mestrado em Ecologia (Flávia Sousa), uma aluna da licenciatura em Biologia Aplicada (Inês Mesquita), e ainda dois ex-alunos da licenciatura em Biologia Aplicada (Daniel Ribeiro Ana Isabel Sousa).

Pelo atrevimento e ousadia em tentar comunicar um conceito científico em apenas 3 minutos, sem qualquer suporte audiovisual, acho que lhes devemos também a nossa presença. Para além disso, todos os elementos da audiência podem votar no seu favorito, e o mais votado vencerá o Prémio do Público. O júri irá selecionar o vencedor da eliminatória e mais três candidatos que passarão à semi-final regional, que terá lugar no Porto, em Março.

Auditório B2, complexo pedagógico 2, campus de Gualtar, Braga, 9 de fevereiro, 15h sexta-feira, 09-02-2018

Exhibition Foto | Grafia da Ciência is hosted at IB-S

The exhibition FOTO | GRAFIA da Ciência (Photo | Script of Science), in display at IB-S, presents a set of words, created with researchers day-to-day laboratory material, which correspond to concepts that Science must be imbued. The idea for this exhibition was born from a CBMA project of dissemination and communication of science.

CBMA, aware of its role and responsibility in the promotion of knowledge, scientific culture and critical thinking, is committed to contribute to increase the perception of the population regarding the importance of Science, Technology and Innovation in the development and in the well-being of society.

Interaction between scientists and society is fundamental for the involvement of the population in the social implications of research, as well as for a better understanding of the underlying scientific process. Thus, CBMA develops and participates in initiatives and projects that aim to bring scientists closer to society, such as the exhibition FOTO | GRAFIA DA CIÊNCIA.

The design of the exhibition FOTO | GRAFIA DA CIÊNCIA is the responsibility of Inês Braga and Hugo Araújo.
