Popularize science through uncomplicated dialogue between researchers and the general public. That was the objective of the three days of Pint Of Science, in Cuiabá. Organized by the State Secretariat for Science, Technology and Innovation (Seciteci), the event took place between the 22nd, 23rd and 24th, bringing together nine researchers to present different scientific works carried out in Mato Grosso. In addition to the capital, the action also took place in 122 other Brazilian cities and in 22 different countries. Created in London in 2013, the festival arrived in Brazil in 2015 and in 2023 was voluntary organized by Seciteci.
The guest researcher, Prof. Dr. Katiuchia Pereira Takeuchi, discussed how science can collaborate to make food healthier. After presenting her research, supported and funded by the Mato Grosso State Research Support Foundation (Fapemat), the professor highlighted the importance of being able to disseminate the results beyond the walls of Universities.
“We are used to academic dissemination to peers, to academic staff, and here is really the challenge of trying to show science in an easy, cool way, and that really involves people who are not in the mood to have such technical. This event makes us leave the laboratory and think about how to communicate science and publicize what we have been doing”, said the researcher.
